Lot #103. Troplong Mondot 2008

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Packaging: OWC.
Score: 96 RP.
"A wine of the vintage candidate in 2008, Troplong Mondot’s offering was produced from yields of 41 hectoliters per hectare and achieved 14.5% natural alcohol. A classic blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, it offers copious quantities of blue and black fruits, a full-bodied opulence, sweet tannin and a fabulous texture as well as finish. Already drinking beautifully, it will be even better in 2-5 years and should last for 20 years. A great effort for the vintage, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving proprietor, Christine Valette. Bravo!" The Wine Advocate #194, May 2011
Provenance: The Sierra Cellar
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $1,300
