If you want to spend a weekend getaway, Troplong Mondot is the perfect place!
A little history
Perched on the hill, Troplong-Mondot overlooks the whole of Saint-Émilion and with its thirty-three (33) hectares, it is one of the biggest estates in the appellation of Saint-Émilion.
Generally the soil of Saint-Émilion is clay and limestone based but Troplong Mondot is lucky enough to have special silex and chalk sediments which help to give the wine its lustrous hue and its rich concentration. The vineyard is managed in the traditional manner and neither weed killers, chemical fertilisers nor insecticides are used.
Chateau Troplong-Mondot, a First Classified Growth, is a powerful, well structured wine with rich complex tannins, which open with time to deep aromas of truffle and blackberry. Since 1985, we have been working
towards increasing the quality of the wines and this is reinforced by strict selection of grapes for the great wine.
Mondot, the second (2nd) wine was created in 1985. The wine is largely Cabernet and has come into its own over the years and can also be considered a great wine with its elegant soft tannins.
