Troplong Mondot 1995
Tasting Notes Troplong Mondot 1995
Totally shut down and enclosed, with an impressively saturated purple/black color and a promising but tightly strung nose of mineral, vanilla, espresso, black cherry and currant, this wine has beautiful purity, medium to full body, relatively high but sweet tannin, and a long 30-35 second finish. The wine is very firm but impressive as well as promising. Patience please! Anticipated maturity: 2007-2020. Last tasted, 11/02.
Very deep purple, garnet core. The nose is a sulky, little sod: utterly closed and yielding nothing at the moment despite vigorous swirling. A slight bretty aroma develops with time (eventually.) The full-bodied palate is tannic with broody, black fruits and rather low acidity but with aeration turns more decadent, though harmonious with just a little astringency on the finish. Needs time but it has great potential. Tasted November 2006. Drink 2010-2020.
