Château La Mondotte: a Saint-Émilion with well-integrated oak

The Château La Mondotte is a Premier Grand Cru Classé B red wine with organic certification. The 4.5-hectare vineyard grows on the clay-limestone plateau east of Saint-Emilion. Ageing is done in barrels (70% in new barrels) on fine lees for an average of 18 months. The Château La Mondotte 2016 blend is made of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc.

The Château La Mondotte 2016 reveals a red colour with purple hues. It offers fruity aromas (red cherry, blueberry, prune) and has well-integrated oak. On the palate, the attack is silky and tannins are present. The tannins extend to the very end of the finish. Best to enjoy the Château La Mondotte 2016 from 2021-2022.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2016 La Mondotte is a blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc this year, picked between 29 September and 15 October and matured in 70% new oak. The alcohol level is around 14.5%. It has a lucid purple hue in the glass. The bouquet is very perfumed, very pure with luscious red cherries, blueberry and a hint of sloes, the new oak discrete and allowing the terroir to shine through perhaps more than the 2015 last year. The palate is silky smooth on the entry, but underneath the bonnet, there is considerable tannic backbone that certainly can be felt more towards the finish that exerts a light grip. In a strange way, it reminds me a little of Château Canon! Give this 4-5 years once in bottle.
