Description
  •  Présentation of the winery

In the 18th century, the vineyard is owned by Father Raymond de Sèze, who in 1745 built the present castle. Castle Troplong Mondot takes place at that time among the first wines from Saint-Emilion. In 1850, Raymond Troplong gets the castle and constitutes the area, which is the same today. Finally, it’s the Valette family since 4 generations, who worked at this winery. In 2006, Christine Valette-Periente and her husband Xavier are rewarded for their efforts, with the classification of vineyard Premier Grand Cru Classé B. The vines are 90% Merlot and the rest is divided between Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.

  • Wine

Château Troplong Mondot 2010 has a deep garnet red color. The nose of this wine is rich, complex, with notes of black fruit, menthol nuances, smoky and liquorice. On the palate, the wine is powerful, concentrated, fatty and velvety tannins. The aftertaste is long and generous.

Château Troplong Mondot

At the top of Saint-Émilion

 

Built in 1745 by Abbot Raymond de Sèze, the castle currently standing atop the hills of Saint-Émilion (not far from the Château La Mondotte) took the name "Troplong Mondot" in 1850. That year, Raymond Troplong, a lawyer, bought the property and, as was customary, added his own name before "Mondot". As for the estate itself, it is one of the largest in the region, with 33 hectares of vineyard (90% Merlot).

The Bordeaux estate started becoming famous around 1920, after the Valette family bought it. This newfound success built up and finally reached its peak in 1981, when Christine Valette took the helm of the estate. She fought fiercely for years and ultimately managed to get the Château Troplong Mondot into the 1955 Saint-Émilion Classification, making it a "1er Grand Cru Classé B".

Nowadays, the former CEO of Cos d'Estournel, Aymeric de Gironde, manages the Château Troplong Mondot, since the SCOR group acquired the property. To diversify their activities, the Château now also doubles as a sumptuous guest house, as well as a Michelin-starred gourmet restaurant: the famous "Belles Perdrix de Troplong Mondot".
