Parker (96)

An amazing tour de force in winemaking, this massive, opaque black/purple-colored offering boasts an extraordinarily pure nose of black fruits intermixed with cedar, vanillin, fudge, and espresso. It is unctuously-textured, with exhilarating levels of blackberry/cassis fruit and extract, as well as multiple dimensions that unfold on the palate. The 50-second finish reveals moderately high tannin. Despite its similarity to dry vintage port, it is not a wine to drink early. It is a colossal wine! Anticipated maturity: 2008-2035. The ultimate garage wine, La Mondotte is ultra-concentrated, frightfully expensive, yet worth every cent.

Winespectator / James Suckling (96)

Extremely well-constructed young red. Black in color, and massively grapey, with loads of mineral, menthol and toasted oak. Full-bodied, with big, velvety tannins and a long, grapey finish. The leading new-wave wine of St.-Emilion. Best after 2010. 800 cases made. –JS
