Wine Advocate (Robert Parker)
"It is the kind of wine with so much energy it practically does pirouettes on your palate. Opaque purple-black colored, the nose is fantastically floral, bursting from the glass with notes of candied violets, red roses and lavender over a core of plum preserves, wild blueberries and black raspberries with touches of garrigu, tilled soil, wild fungi and crushed rocks plus a waft of powdered cinnamon. The medium-bodied palate is like a thightly coiled spring, featuring beautifully knit layers of black and red fruits, earth and floral notes within a firm, fine-grained frame and bags of freshness, finishing long and mineral laced. this is a far cry from the old-school style of Troplong Mondot from a few years back, and it is incredibly impressive."
Mâche soyeuse subtile en attaque avec un tannin qui prend progressivement de la densité et de la profondeur. La fraicheur aromatique est parfaitement intégrée et la finale crayeuse donne de la verticalité au vin. Grande réussite.
"Clear salinity, this grips with a dual character of seduction alongside precision. Estate signature in that it has coiled power with its berry fruits and cocoa notes, with a chalky depth to the tannins reflecting the clay and limestone soils. Complex and rich, but conserving its energy. The hidden power is perhaps the biggest difference with the old Troplong pre-2017, when they were happy to show the power right from the start. There are a lot of layers going in here, real complexity that is in no hurry to reveal itself. High alcohol despite earlier picking dates, beacause the terroir is the boss here."
"Cool and contained with floral and dark fruit notes. Cassis as it opens. delightful texture. Silkier than Mondot and less chalky but fresh and terroir-driven. Juic, saline, the tannins, channelled to give length and drive. Clean, firm finish."
VINOUS by Antonio Galloni
"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 statuesque Saint-Emilion endowed with tremendous energy and pure power. Troplong Mondot is not as obvious a wine as it was few years ago, but its grandeur - and more importantly, the grandeurof this site - are evident. Troplong Mondot is a wine that simply can't be denied."
"Beaucoup de fraîcheur de fruits et de précision dans ce bouquet. notes de framboises et de fraises, qui confèrent de la fraîcheur, suivies de réglisse et d'une touche de poivre noir. EN bouche le vin est frais, friand, et crémeux. il a du corps et affiche une rafraîchissante tension en finale. belle aptitude à faire cohabiter le côté friand et la race. C'est un grand vin, qui est en train de se dessiner."
