Chateau La Mondotte 2001
|Brand||Chateau La Mondotte|
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
Made in an elegant, surprisingly low key style for La Mondotte, the concentrated, delicious, opaque purple-colored 2001 builds incrementally on the palate. An impressive bouquet of black cherries, creme de cassis, toast, and minerals is followed by a medium to full-bodied effort with nicely integrated wood, acidity, and tannin as well as a long finish. This is a brilliant wine, and one of the finest efforts of the vintage.
Winespectator / James Suckling (93)
Solid red with loads of spicy, rich berry fruit, with just the hint of spice. Full-bodied, with a well-integrated fruit and tannin structure. Long finish. Tight and firm now. Needs time. This is very serious.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 19/20 points.
