Chateau La Mondotte 2002
|Brand||Chateau La Mondotte|
|Region||Bordeaux, St. Emilion|
|Condition||From Original Wooden Case|
A decidedly lighter-styled wine than the 2003, this elegant, medium-bodied effort from La Mondotte boasts a deep ruby/purple-tinged color and some sweet mulberry and black cherry fruit intermixed with a hint of white chocolate and espresso. Stylish but ultimately lacking great depth and persistence, this wine should be drunk over the next 10-15 years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (91)
This is tight right now and needs bottle age to open up. Yet with decanting it reveals blackberry, vanilla, spices and cherries. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, caressing finish. Finely crafted.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
