Troplong Mondot 1982

Chateau Troplong Mondot

37

This is a soft, simple, one-dimensional wine that was made before proprietor Christine Valette began to take Troplong-Mondot to the heights of the Bordeaux hierarchy. The soft, herbal, pleasant 1982's fruit is beginning to dry out. The acidity, tannin, and alcohol are starting to dominate. Drink it up. Vintages since 1986 have been another animal altogether, with magnificent wines produced in 1988, 1989, 1990, 1993, and 1994. Tasted 3 times since bottling with consistent notes.

Chateau Troplong Mondot

The entire estate of Chateau Troplong Mondot stretches over 33 hectares, with the grape selection as follows: 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. Troplong Mondot did not gain widespread recognition until recent years, and many put down the success to the Chateaus collaboration with Michel Rolland.
