Chateau La Mondotte is located on the eastern part of the Saint-Emilion plateau next to Troplong-Mondot. Its outstanding terroir (clay limestone soil with very silty clay and rocky subsoil) has all the natural qualities to produce very great wine. The vines are an average of 50 years old and the vineyard contains only premium grape varieties (75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc). Ripening, especially of Merlot, is almost invariably early and complete. La Mondotte is deeply-coloured, well-structured, and extraordinarily opulent. The terroir also confers unparalleled finesse.
