An amazing tour de force in winemaking this massive opaque black/purple-colored offering boasts an extraordinarily pure nose of black fruits intermixed with cedar vanillin fudge and espresso. It is unctuously-textured with exhilarating levels of blackberry/cassis fruit and extract as well as multiple dimensions that unfold on the palate.

The ultimate garage wine La Mondotte is ultra-concentrated frightfully expensive yet worth every cent.</P>

Full-bodied with big velvety tannins and a long grapey finish. The leading new-wave wine of St.-Emilion. Best after 2010. 800 cases made. (JS)
