”We want to produce a wine that we like, because if we don’t sell it, we drink it!” afslutter den Bourgogne-fødte winemaker Ferreol du Fou sin introduktion til 1er Grand Cru Classe slottet Troplong Mondot i Saint-Emilion.

Og den burgundiske drikkeglæde er let at spore i Ferreol du Fous håndværk. 2. vinen ’Mondot’ fra Troplong Mondot, er lavet på 100% Merlot, og har en elegance, saftighed og frugtprofil som henleder tankerne på Bourgognes imødekommende udtryk, men som serveres med Bordeauxs intensitet og fylde.

Det Burgundiske skyldes også mere end Ferreol du Fous hjemstavn. Udover at være født i Bourgogne, så har han også en fortid hos den legendariske Vosne-Romanée producent, Comte Liger-Belair. 

Så det er ikke tilfældigt, at man fristes til at kalde hans fortolkning af Saint-Emillions terroir for Bourgogne-agtigt, og det er præcis sådan her, man ønsker at en 2. vin skal udtrykke sig. For her kan man få lov at opleve slottets stil og udtryk, uden at man behøver vente de mange, lange år, det tager de store Bordeaux-slotte at blive klar, Troplong Mondot inklusiv. Hobetallet af anmeldere som kaster flotte ord og point efter vinen, understreger kun det høje niveau for vinen, og Decanter siger det meget direkte ”This is worth stocking up on”.

Så grib chancen for at opleve noget af Bordeauxs og Saint-Emilions mest interessante terroir, fortolket af en af regionens mest spændende winemakers.

Vinen har lagret 60% på egetræsfade der har været brugt én gang før, og de resterende 40% lagres på ståltank.

"Lots of blackcurrant, violets, very beautiful black cherries in the nose. Magnificent brilliance. Slightly spicy on aeration. In the mouth, beautiful complexity, very great freshness, a relatively important density and a bit earthy and cold terroir. Crunchy and juicy,  beautiful acidity and juicy roundness. Tannins are fresh fine grained. Aerial and minty finish. Very beautiful finish. A great Mondot. Superb!"

” Dark ruby garnet, opaque core, violet reflections, wider rim brightening. Still somewhat restrained, dark berry fruit, delicate cherries and nougat. Juicy, a touch of figs, but also red berries, fine, ripe tannins, fresh structured, white pepper in the finish.”

“Unwinding in the glass with aromas of sweet blackberries and raspberries mingled with hints of rose petal and spices, the 2020 Mondot is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with a pure, seamless core of vibrant fruit and a long, succulent finish. Derived from Merlot growing on recently acquired vineyards on Saint-Émilion's limestone plateau, some 40% of the blend is matured in tank, with the rest in once-used barriques.”

“All Merlot from limestone soils, brought up in a mix of once-used barrels and tank, the 2020 Château Troplong Mondot Mondot sports a dense ruby hue as well as a gorgeous bouquet of pure black cherries, smoked tobacco, chalky earth and hints of tobacco. This beauty is medium to full-bodied, has an elegant, seamless mouthfeel, and a great finish. “

Milk chocolate, violets, roses, lots of vibrant floral aromas with blue and red fruit. Super-fresh and vibrant, a crystalline and finessed aspect to the blueberry, red cherry and damson fruit but remaining quite fine in terms of texture. Focused, not so rich or plush, silky with the limestone giving the strictness, but also precision, sense of purity and salty, slate minerality alongside clove, cinnamon and liquorice. Mouthwatering acidity gives the vibrancy and overall this is round, layered and well balanced with energy and focus. Consistent quality in 2020 with a touch of the Trolong shine and sparkle. Ageing 60% one-year-old barrels, 40% stainless steel tank for 14 months. This is worth stocking up on.

“Love this wine, which conveys real personality, majoring on blueberry, raspberry and redcurrant fruits, with a great whack of salinity on the finish. This really comes in strong on slate and salted tang, a delicious second wine with the punch and the power of Troplong but showcasing the finesse of limestone soils. Harvest September 5 to October 3. Not released En Primeur, just when in bottle. Aged in 60% neutral barrel, 40% in stainless steel. Beautiful spice here, real depth with extra creaminess as it has opened up since En Primeur. “

”The 2020 Mondot is an absolute delight. Freshly cut flowers, blood orange, sage, mint and rose petal accents are all laced together in this sensual, mid-weight Saint-Émilion. Mondot, 100% Merlot from limestone soils, is terric. Aging is 60% in wood and 40% in tank, which also helps maintain energy.
