From the tiny luxury jewel of the Neipperg family, the 2005 La Mondotte is composed of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc from a fabulous terroir. Super-rich and dense purple in color, it represents a concentrated essence in both its aromatic and flavor profile of blackcurrant, black cherry, earth and spice. Full-bodied, pure, and again, possessing sweet, sweet tannin and a tremendously deep, full, layered personality. This is another great example of La Mondotte, which should drink well for 30-40 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Wine Spectator, March 2008
This has an incredible nose with blackberry black licorice and intense coffee and toasty oak character. Full-bodied with layers of beautiful oak and ripe fruit. Long and voluptuous. Best after 2017. -JS

Superripe aromas of black raspberry blackberry chocolate and minerals. Wonderfully silky and smooth on the palate displaying extraordinary sweetness for a sample that still has some unconverted malic acidity. Explosive finish features gripping tannins and a chewy sensation of extract. A great vintage for this tiny property on the late-ripening plateau east of St. Emilion. 92-95 points

Deep, inward and super-concentrated, the 2005 offers notable density and inkiness, but not much else today. It will be interesting to see what a few more years in bottle brings. Today, the 2005 Mondotte shows plenty of power, but less in the way of finesse.
