This wine combines power, freshness and elegant aromas. The nose is complex, revealing floral scents mingling with fruit aromas, subtle oak and spicy notes. Very well balanced on the palate with tannins still coming through to provide structure for long-ageing. To keep.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Now reaching 20 years old, the 1996 Troplong-Mondot has a rather staid bouquet that is missing a sense of animation and terroir expression. It kind of just sits there. The palate is medium-bodied with chewy tannin, a touch of chocolate and candied orange peel, nicely weighted in the mouth with a little more freshness on the finish than exhibited by the nose. This was not a great Saint Emilion vintage and this Troplong-Mondot cannot transcend that, but it gives modest drinking pleasure. Tasted July 2016.
