    A rich and intense Saint-Emilion red wine

    The Château La Mondotte is a red wine produced in the Saint-Emilion appellation with a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. There is 17 months of ageing with 100% on new barrels.

    The colour is quite opaque red. The nose reveals blackberry, crème de cassis, roasted espresso, chocolate and toast. On the palate, Château La Mondotte 2008 offers tannins of extreme sweetness, exceptional opulence and a flamboyant personality. An intense and rich wine to consume until 2025.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    A brilliant effort, the 2008 La Mondotte is a candidate for wine of the vintage. This blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc hit 14% natural alcohol. Yields were 24 hectoliters per hectare. The wine boasts an opaque purple color along with sweet aromas of mulberries, creme de cassis, blackberries, espresso roast, chocolate and toast. Sweet tannin, an opulent mouthfeel and a flamboyant personality make for a prodigious/compelling wine that can be drunk now or cellared for two decades or more. This is an unbelievable 2008 of extravagant intensity and richness. Bravo! Anticipated maturity: now-2025.
