CHÂTEAU LA MONDOTTE 2000 (6) 98+ WA


CHÂTEAU LA MONDOTTE 2000 SAINT-ÉMILION. GRAND CRU CLASSÉ IN TWO TASTINGS THIS GARAGISTE WINE PERFORMED AS IF IT WERE ONE OF THE WINES OF THE VINTAGE. PROPRIETOR STEFAN VON NEIPPERG CONTINUES TO LAVISH ABUNDANT ATTENTION ON LA MONDOTTE (AS HE DOES WITH ALL HIS ESTATES), AND THE 2000 (80% MERLOT AND 20% CABERNET FRANC) BOASTS AN INKY/BLUE/PURPLE COLOR IN ADDITION TO GORGEOUS AROMAS OF GRAPHITE, CARAMEL, TOAST, BLACKBERRIES, AND CREME DE CASSIS. A FLORAL COMPONENT ALSO EMERGES AS THE WINE SITS IN THE GLASS. EXTREMELY DENSE, FULL-BODIED, AND BUILT FOR ANOTHER TWENTY YEARS OF CELLARING, I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE CLOSE TO FULL MATURITY, BUT IT APPEARS TO NEED ANOTHER 4-5 YEARS OF BOTTLE AGE. IT SHOULD AGE EFFORTLESSLY FOR 2-3 DECADES. 98+ WA 6 BTS. (OWC) PER LOT $2,000 - $2,400




Price Realised: $2400
