Troplong Mondot’s 2003 is a brilliant success in this vintage, largely because of the limestone soils and incredibly low yields. There are nearly 70 acres of vines in production, yields were tiny, and the harvest was early. Nevertheless, there is an opulence and youthfulness in this wine that suggest it has at least a decade of life left. A luxurious effort with high glycerin, loads of blueberry, mulberry, black currant, licorice and charcoal ember-like notes, full body, low acidity and sweet tannin, this beauty is close to full maturity and can be drunk now as well as over the next decade. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Red-ruby. Sappy aromas of very ripe redcurrant tobacco and minerals. Fat sexy and deep with flavors of redcurrant plum tobacco and spice lifted by the wine's mineral component. Wonderfully rich full-blown wine finishing... Red-ruby. Sappy aromas of very ripe redcurrant tobacco and minerals. Fat sexy and deep with flavors of redcurrant plum tobacco and spice lifted by the wine's mineral component. Wonderfully rich full-blown wine finishing with serious toothcoating tannins that call for at least four or five years of patience. This is close to 14% alcohol but even this vintage of Troplong-Mondot has more acidity than the 1990.

Beautiful plum berry and raspberry aromas follow through to a full-bodied palate with refined tannins and a long caressing finish. Very nicely done. Best after 2009. 3915 cases made. -JS
