Chateau La Mondotte 1999
|Brand||Chateau La Mondotte|
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
Along with the 1997, the 1999 is the most forward and accessible La Mondotte yet produced. Its opaque purple color is followed by a glorious nose of candied black fruits, graphite, licorice, and underbrush. It is full-bodied and sumptuous, possessing amazing extract and richness for the vintage. Its high tannin is hidden by a wealth of glycerin, fruit, and extract. Moreover, the finish lasts for 35-45 seconds. This is an amazing achievement in 1999.
Winespectator / James Suckling (89)
Slightly overextracted, but shows serious aromas, with lots of black licorice, violets, berries and coffee on the nose. Medium- to full-bodied, with an herbal, berry character, medium tannins and a fresh finish.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
