Combining remarkable elegance allied to considerable power and depth this is the finest wine from Troplong Mondot since the staggeringly great 1990. Its saturated purple color is followed by aromas of ink creme de cassis graphite and toasty oak. Full-bodied and powerful with excellent balance this is a wine of extraordinary richness and massiveness yet surreal freshness as well as vibrancy. The finish lasts for over 45 seconds and nearly conceals some hefty tannins. With fabulous definition richness and intensity this is a compelling 2000. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2026.

Sweet on entry then lush and densely packed in the middle with terrific depth of flavor and backbone. Very ripe yet cool flavors of blackberry espresso and licorice. A powerfully constituted wine that will need a good decade of bottle aging. But in contrast to the 2001 and 2002 vintages here the strong tannins are beautifully distributed and fine. A great success for this chateau.

Lovely berry cherry and spice with hints of mineral. Full-bodied with fine tannins and a pretty mineral and berry aftertaste. A sexy and refined red. Best after 2009. 7080 cases made. –JS
