Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 96-98/100
The 2019 Troplong Mondot is sensational. Rich, vibrant and explosive, the 2019 pulses with energy. Black cherry, violet plum, licorice, lavender and dark spice build in a statuesque Saint-Émilion endowed with tremendous energy and pure power. Troplong Mondot is not as obvious a wine as it was a few years ago, but its grandeur – and more importantly, the grandeur of this site – are evident. Troplong Mondot is a wine that simply can’t be denied. The 2019 is aging in 60% new oak and 40% a combination of once-used barrels, foudres and amphora.
The Wine Advocate – 96-98/100
The 2019 Troplong Mondot is a blend this year of 85% Merlot, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc, harvested from the 10th to the 25th of September. The pH is 3.55—pretty incredible when you consider the alcohol is nearly 15%! I hasten to add that from tasting, I would have guessed this was 14.3% to 14.5% alcohol. It is the kind of wine with so much energy it practically does pirouettes on your palate.
J.M. Quarin – 95/100
Couleur sombre, intense et vive. Nez intense, fin, pur, au fruité mûr et épicé. Immédiatement délicat dès l’entrée en bouche, plus floral que jamais, minutieux dans son toucher et sans cesse parfumé, le vin s’étire en finale, savoureux et délicatement complexe dans son déroulé. Bonne longueur. Assemblage : 85 % merlot, 13 % cabernet sauvignon, 2 % cabernet franc.
