Troplong Mondot 2020 released
The 2020 Troplong Mondot has been released for £864 per 12×75, 18.2% more than the current Market Price of the 2019.
One of the most exciting properties in Bordeaux today, Troplong Mondot in Saint Emilion has undergone an extensive transformation in recent times. When the estate was bought in 2017, Aymeric de Gironde (formerly of Pichon Baron and Cos d’Estournel) has been employed as Estate Director and Thomas Duclos brought in as consultant, and the style at Troplong has completely changed. By picking earlier and favouring lighter extractions, working the wine less and letting the terroir speak for itself, Troplong Mondot has become more interesting and a serious player once more.
Neal Martin awarded the wine 94-96 points. He said, “This is a delicious and characterful Saint-Emilion, fresh and vibrant, that will fill out and gain depth during its barrel maturation.”
Jeb Dunnuck said, “Hats off to the team at Troplong Mondot”, and awarded 96-98 points.
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW gave 95-97+ points and noted an ABV of 14.5%.
This is a wine that we believe should feature in each of our portfolios – so we have taken good allocations here.
