CHÂTEAU TROPLONG MONDOT 1989
Saint-Émilion. Premier Grand Cru Classé B
u. 2 x bn. 2 x marked labels. 2 x scraped capsules.
A very youthful wine that probably will never hit the heights of the 1990 (but how many wines do?), this dense ruby/purple-colored wine has a very pure nose of roasted espresso, black cherry jam, blackberry, mineral, and even a hint of blueberry. Some smoke and high-quality toasty new oak are there, but now that seems to be fading into the background. Quite full-bodied, powerful, and concentrated, yet at the same time elegant, this wine still seems very young and unevolved. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025. Last tasted, 11/02. WA 95+
