Tasting Notes

"Tannin satiné et crémeux porté par une structure très fournie qui se déploie toute en subtilité du toucher de bouche jusqu’à sa finale. Grain remarquablement fin et frais. (translation: Satin and creamy tannins carried by a very well provided structure that unfolds in mouth with subtle touches all the way to finish. Remarkably fine and fresh grain.)" - BETTANE & DESSEAUVE (5/3/2019), Ratings: 96

"The 2018 La Mondotte is one of the highlights in this vintage. A rich, extravagant Saint-Émilion, La Mondotte retains a surprising amount of nuance and detail for a wine of its size. Crème de cassis, lavender, mint, spice and licorice all run through this sumptuous, full-throttle wine. Bright saline notes add energy and vibrancy. Simply put, the 2018 is stunning." - VINOUS (ANTONIO GALLONI) (5/1/2019), Ratings: 94-97

"Wow. This is very dense and powerful with linear tannins and vivid acidity that run straight through the center of the wine. It’s full-bodied with great freshness. Loads of blackberry character and a salty-mineral undertone. Extremely long in the finish." - JAMES SUCKLING (4/12/2019), Ratings: 97-98

"Intense raspberry and plum compote flavors show juicy energy, backed by a liberal dose of roasted apple wood notes. Grippy and still a bit chewy, but the drive is there, along with a buried mineral edge that lingers." - WINE SPECTATOR (JAMES MOLESWORTH) (4/3/2019), Ratings: 96-99
