Château Troplong Mondot

Château Troplong Mondot

Chateau Troplong Mondot is the Premier Grand Cru Classe B. The beautiful winery dates back to 1745, when Troplong Mondot was part of a large domain, including even the vineyards of Chateau Pavie. The winery now has 33 ha of vineyards along Mondot Hill, northeast of the Saint-Emilion appellation, planted with 90% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc. Due to the cooler terroir on the hills and the clay soil, Troplong Mondot are often the last to harvest. 75% of the barrels are new French oak, where the wine ages for 16 to 24 months. Chateau Troplong Mondot wine has a unique style - thick and filling the mouth, but never heavy. It is more sensual than elegant for the palate, full of flavors and develops and ages beautifully.

Bordeaux

Bordeaux

Bordeaux is perhaps the most famous wine region in France. It stretches 130 kilometers inland from the Atlantic coast. In 2018, 111,000 hectares of vineyards were registered, a figure that remains largely constant over the previous decade. The main varieties grown here are Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc and they are used to make different wines, each producer having its own blend and proportions of mixing the varieties. Here are produced some of the most famous, most expensive and long-lasting wines in the world - the well-known subregions Medoc, Graves, St. Emilion, Pomerol and many others. Bordeaux is divided by the Gironde River on the left and right banks. Characteristic of the left bank (Medoc, Haut Medoc, Graves) is the more serious presence of Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend of wine, while on the right bank (St. Emillion, Pomerol) merlot predominates. In addition to red wines, Bordeaux is famous for the production of white, mainly a blend between Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, with the Sauternes subregion and the leading Chateau d’Yquem, famous for its complex and multi-layered, aromatic and sweet botrytized dessert wine.

Merlot

Merlot

Southwest of France is Merlot’s birthplace - the regions of Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. Merlot is nowadays widely planted across the world much like Cabernet Sauvignon because it is an early maturing grape variety and because of its ability to ripen fully even in slightly cooler climates. Smooth, velvety, soft and rounded - an “easy drinking" wine with tender tannic structure - these are the common descriptions of Merlot wines.
