"A wine of the vintage candidate in 2008, Troplong Mondot’s offering was produced from yields of 41 hectoliters per hectare and achieved 14.5% natural alcohol. A classic blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, it offers copious quantities of blue and black fruits, a full-bodied opulence, sweet tannin and a fabulous texture as well as finish. Already drinking beautifully, it will be even better in 2-5 years and should last for 20 years. A great effort for the vintage, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving proprietor, Christine Valette. Bravo!" Reviewed by Robert Parker.

2013 Chateau Figeac Saint Emilion (Futures)

"This delivers a very solid core of plum, cassis and blackberry fruit, with polished edges and a good underpinning of iron and violet notes through the finish. Long and solidly built without overreaching. One of the top surprises of the vintage."

Reviewed by: James Molesworth, Wine Spectator - 91-94pts

"Barrel Sample. Here’s a solidly tannic wine, with a smoky wood character that lies over the juicy fruit layers. It will need time to coalesce, but it shows the potential to be able to age well."

2011 Chateau Troplong Mondot Saint Emilion

"This pulls no punches, with a torrent of raspberry preserves, plum sauce and blackberry cobbler rushing forth, studded with warm fruit cake and melted licorice notes. Offers a long, well-toasted finish, where everything hangs together harmoniously. An impressive example of the powerful style. Best from 2016 through 2028."

Reviewed by: Wine Spectator - 92pts.

"The brilliant 2011 Troplong Mondot is one of the superstars of the vintage. The final blend was 89% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc, and the wine tips the scales at 14.5% alcohol. Its opaque blue/purple, nearly black color is followed by aromas of blueberry liqueur interwoven with black raspberries, blackberries, licorice, camphor and forest floor. Among the most complete wines of the vintage, with no hollowness, astringency or herbaceousness, this is a tour de force in a challenging vintage. Some tannins are noticeable, but this 2011 is already approachable and should provide delicious, complex drinking over the next two decades. Bravo!" - Robert Parker, Jr.

2010 Chateau Canon La Gaffeliere Saint Emilion

"This wine shows wonderfully exotic tapenade, licorice, Christmas fruitcake, cedar wood, blackberry and sweet cherry notes in its strikingly provocative aromatics. On the palate, the wine is dense and full-bodied, with stunning concentration, purity, texture and length. It is full-bodied, silky smooth and seems to have more in common with the 2009 than one might expect, although the freshness and tannin levels are slightly more elevated." -Robert Parker, Jr.
