Dominating the St Emilion village, Troplong Mondot and its 33 hectares is one of the " big " estates of the region. Endowed with a fabulous terroir, the quality of the wines has steadily improved since the arrival of Christine Valette-Pariente in 1980. Her husband joined her a few years later and started the restructuration of the facilities and the vineyard in a respectful approach of the environment. Their efforts led the estate to the rank of 1er Grand Cru Classé of St Emilion in 2006. The wines, profound, concentrated, are a perfect union between the elegance and the power of the terroir.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2012 is another truly great wine from Troplong Mondot. It's always sentimental to taste this wine, realizing that proprietress Christine Valette (the larger-than-life heart and soul behind this estate) has passed away. She was one of the bright, shining stars of Bordeaux. Nevertheless, her legacy is certainly well-established, and the quality of this wine is beyond reproach. Inky bluish purple, its great notes of cassis, blackberry, licorice are followed by a full-bodied, opulently textured wine with stunning concentration, purity and overall balance. It should drink well for 20-25 years and turn out to be one of the great superstars of 2012. Their 63-acre vineyard was cropped at 31 hectoliters per hectare, producing a final blend of 90% Merlot and 10 Cabernet Sauvignon that achieved 14.2% alcohol.
