Chateau La Mondotte 1997
|Brand||Chateau La Mondotte|
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
A stupendous effort, and unquestionably one of the wines of the vintage, La Mondotte's 1997 boasts a saturated purple color as well as an explosive nose of blackberries, violets, minerals, and sweet toasty oak. Huge and massive, yet gorgeously proportioned, it possesses an unctuous texture with no hard edges. Seductive and easy to drink, it should be consumed between now and 2015.
Winespectator / James Suckling (90)
Well-constructed wine and more harmonious than the 1996. Good dark color, with impressive aromas of spices, tobacco, coffee and toasted oak. Full-bodied and chewy, with lots of new wood on the palate.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
