Ch. Troplong Mondot (0.75 L)
NM: Tasted blind at Southwold í»06 Bordeaux tasting. The Troplong Mondot í»06 has a rounded, opulent bouquet, well-defined, primal, superb definition with real minerality coming through. Tightly wound. They palate is medium-bodied with a dense structure, a rigid backbone here, a structure that needs time to soften. Charcoal-infused black fruits, rather introspective towards the finish. Broodyí¡but compelling. This is a long-term proposition and I prefer it to the recent í»09. Tasted January 2010.
