On top of the tannins is juicy black fruit cocoa a welter of spice and ripeness. The acidity and new wood put the wine into a more modern style. Wait for at least 5-7 years.

Tightly wound. They palate is medium-bodied with a dense structure, a rigid backbone here, a structure that needs time to soften. Charcoal-infused black fruits, rather introspective towards the finish. Broody…but compelling. This is a long-term proposition and I prefer it to the recent ’09.

Brooding aromas of crushed blueberry bitter chocolate and roast coffee. Rich broad and sweet with an almost liqueur-like ripeness of dark berries leavened by brisk acidity and firm minerality. Lots of lift and life here for such a lush creamy wine. Finishes with big sweet building tannins and terrific palate-staining length. This should enjoy a long evolution in bottle. 93 points

Coffee cedar blackberry and tobacco aromas follow through to a tight powerful palate. This is full yet very reserved with silky polished tannins. Best after 2014. 5330 cases made. -JS

Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London. The 2006 Château Troplong-Mondot has a meaty, slightly brettanomyces nose that nevertheless displays impressive volume, feisty black cherry and mulberry fruit, a touch of iodine developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with dark plum and cassis on the entry, full-bodied but not alcoholic, retaining that hedonism that is showed in its youth, though missing some delineation and finesse towards the "stocky," tarry finish. Tasted January 2016. - Neal Martin
