2017 Château Troplong-Mondot, Grand Cru Classé St-Emilion

There's nice berry fruit, with decent energy and freshness. Plums and blackberries with a touch of graphite and limestone. Nice length to the finish.

TASTING NOTES

Black core with deep purple rim. Smells ripe, almost a little raisiny, rich in purple fruit. Firm tannins but it does have freshness on the finish. Chewy, dense, with the oak well integrated. Still in a very ripe style.

16/20

A bright and vivid red with dark-berry and plum character. Floral and bright. Medium to full body. Intense and crystal-clear. Ultra-fine tannins with a long and beautiful. Wonderful balance and harmony.
