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. 


Gabriel: 18/20
Extrem dunkles Purpur mit violetten Reflexen. Extrem süsses Bouquet, Vanille, Pflaumen, Amarenakirschen, gekochte Walderdbeeren, Bounty (Schoko-Kokos), Cassis und ganz reifer Holunder. Also ein facettenreicher, fast kompottiger Fruchtcocktail. Logischerweise setzt sich diese enorme Süsse in malziger, bis kompottiger Form im Gaumen fort. Die Adstringenz zeigt sich vor allem auf der Zunge. Im Innern kernig, pikant, trockene, sandige Tannine, eine wahnsinnige, nicht ganz zum Jahrgang passende Konzentration zeigend, verlangt nach Reife und sehnt sich nach Charme, hatte sicherlich einen sehr langen Nachklang. Ob das aber so genial wird, ist noch fraglich. Hohe Wertung - aber definitiv nicht mein Stil! 


Galloni: 94/100
One of the clear wines of the vintage, the 2012 Troplong-Mondot has been remarkable on several occasions. Sweet crushed flowers, red cherries, smoke, tobacco and plums open up in a heady, sensual Saint-Emilion that hits all the right notes. The 2012 blossoms nicely with time in the glass, gaining volume, but never losing its precision. This head-turning, flashy Saint-Emilion will delight readers for the next two decades, perhaps longer. What a gorgeous wine this is. Sadly, proprietor Christine Valette passed away in the spring of 2013, but her legacy will remain alive for quite some time with wines like this.
