(NM94-96 points) The La Mondotte is a blend of 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc picked between 9th and 18th October and matured entirely in new oak. It has a gorgeous, sensual bouquet with luscious, pure blackcurrant, fresh strawberry and vanilla aromas that are beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe tannins, plenty of rounded, caressing red fruit and the oak is seamless integrated on the finish. This will be a great La Mondotte.

Very intense nose showing orange peel, blackberries as well as ink and vanilla notes. Full-bodied red with chewy tannins, lovely acidity and a long, long finish. Complex and structured. Drink after 2019.

From the luxury, 12-acre boutique outpost of the Neipperg family, the 2012 La Mondotte (generally 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc) has an inky/purple color, sweet mulberry, black cherry and cassis note, stunning purity... From the luxury, 12-acre boutique outpost of the Neipperg family, the 2012 La Mondotte (generally 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc) has an inky/purple color, sweet mulberry, black cherry and cassis note, stunning purity and full-bodied texture. The wine’s opulence and voluptuous character compare to its greatest vintages, such as 1998, 2000, 2005, 2009 and 2010. Its great terroir (clay and limestone soils) shines through with a stunning effort in the vintage. Drink it over the next 10-15 years. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

This pulls no punches, with loads of mint-kissed plum sauce, blackberry confiture and raspberry pâte de fruit flavors that cascade over one another, pumping though a polished, anise-framed finish. Best from 2017 through...

The 2012 La Mondotte is likely to require quite a bit of time to come together. Dense and powerful in the glass, yet with a vertical spine of structure, the 2012 has a lot to say. Smoke, graphite, black cherries, mocha... The 2012 La Mondotte is likely to require quite a bit of time to come together. Dense and powerful in the glass, yet with a vertical spine of structure, the 2012 has a lot to say. Smoke, graphite, black cherries, mocha and licorice flow through to the dense, powerful finish. The purity of the fruit is striking. La Mondotte, a 85% Merlot/15% Cabernet Franc blend emerges from a tiny estate with vineyards planted on a bed of limestone and clay.
