2001 Saint-Emilion Premier Grand Cru Classe B

Following along the lines of the 2000 release, the 2001 Chateau Troplong Mondot boasts harmony and elegance, with black fruits, blackcurrant liquor, and anise scents. This 2001 Saint-Emilion is fleshy, tasty, with superb texture and concentration, as well as full, luscious tannins. A Premier Grand Cru Classe B with outstanding balance!

Wine Advocate-Parker :
This estate continues to merit substantial praise. Let's hope in the upcoming revised Classification of the Wines of St.-Emilion, Troplong Mondot merits elevation to Premier Grand Cru Classe, which it has deserved for some time. Not far off the pace of the spectacular 2000, the 2001 is performing even better from bottle than it was from cask. A gorgeous perfume of plum jam, creme de cassis, flowers, licorice, black fruits, a hint of graphite, and well-integrated wood notes is followed by a medium to full-bodied St.-Emilion with superb texture, great flavor purity, and tremendous harmony as well as elegance. Remarkably approachable despite its impressive concentration and well-concealed tannin, this is a beauty. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2017.
