Tasting Notes La Mondotte 2017

96-98

There was no frost here. Composed of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 La Mondotte simply sings of gorgeous ripe blackberries, mulberries and black raspberries with touches of sandalwood, lavender, licorice and rose hips plus wafts of garrigue and exotic spices. The palate is medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated with firm, very silky tannins and layer upon layer of black fruits and spices, finishing very long and beautifully perfumed.

Incredibly complete for the vintage, this cascades with its character of dark chocolate, blackberry coulis and Chinese spices. It’s so very beguiling on the palate with rich yet in-tune black fruit and complemented by regal, surrounding tannins. Bright acid carries this through to a long finish.

The 2017 La Mondotte is a total stunner, not to mention one of the wines of the vintage. Exquisitely layered in the glass, the 2017 possesses stunning freshness and vibrant to play off the characteristically dense Mondotte fruit. Lavender, chocolate, menthol, spice, crushed rocks and new leather add nuance to a core of plush, inky dark fruit. La Mondotte was spared damage from frost. For the first time, La Mondotte contains 30% Cabernet Franc. Tasted two times.

Solidly built, with a ganache frame that marries well with the core of fig and plum compote flavors. Tobacco and chalky minerality line the finish, revealing an echo of savory at the very end. Starts big and gains refinement as it moves along.—J.M.

The 2017 La Mondotte was picked 14 to 29 September at 26hl/ha, a respectable yield since this was not touched by the frost. It is matured in 60% new oak. It has quite a rich and opulent bouquet with layers of kirsch, wild strawberry, blood orange and rose petals. Sure, it is a little glossy in style although that is usual for La Mondotte at this early stage. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. This feels quite rounded in the mouth, low acidity, sensual in texture with a touch of spice and white pepper towards the sumptuous finish. Without question this is the best of Comte Stephan von Neipperg’s wines this year and a really quite masterful La Mondotte. Tasted three times with consistent notes.
