Reviews for 2011 Mondotte, La Bordeaux Blend

Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
This vivid red shows excellent definition to its linzer torte black currant and juicy plum flavors with lots of chalk and iron-driven cut on the finish. Ripe sleek and focused. A step ahead of the pack.-J.M.

This is really long and beautiful. Very impressive. Lovely aromas of flowers berries and chocolate. Full and dense yet refined and subtle. Wonderful length. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

This tiny yet special terroir owned by Stefan von Neipperg has turned out a sumptuous, opulent, gorgeously proportioned St.-Emilion that is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. The color is a dense purple and the bouquet offers up scents of mulberries, sweet black cherries, licorice, incense and a touch of minerality. Broad, concentrated and rich, this full-bodied wine will benefit from several years of bottle age and drink well for 20 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Picked on 21st September (Merlot) and 26th September (Cabernet Franc) at a whopping 18hl/ha the La Mondotte has a sweet pure nose of dark cherries and cassis of course saturated with creamy new oak although it is in synch with the fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet ripe tannins on the entry. Low acidity plush and sensual it does not have the complexity of say the 2005 or 2009 although it is svelte and focused a pretty La Mondotte to age over 10-15 years. Tasted April 2012.

Count von Neipperg's crown jewel atop the "Pavie slope" overlooking the St. Emilion plateau this 4.8-hectare property is comprised of clay and limestone soils. Aged in 100% new oak. A sexy nose of red cherry and Chambord. The fruit flavors are dense and layered with an underlying freshness from the vintage's high acid. Hedonistic on the palate with mocha chocolate and orange citrus notes all buttressed with controlled soft tannins. One of the richer Right Bank 2011s though it was done well with a skilled hand. This wine will be fun to drink young and will be at its best between 2025 and 2033.
