blockbuster effort from proprietress Christine Valette (who
also deserves congratulations for Troplong Mondot's ascent to a St.-Emilion
Premier Grand Cru Classe, currently suspended pending litigation), this full-
bodied, multi-tiered 2005 continues to confirm its extraordinary dimensions and
quality. It is unquestionably the finest vintage for Troplong since 1990.
A modern day legend, it exhibits a black/blue color as well as
aromas and flavors of graphite, blueberries, black truffles, incense, and
camphor. The sensational sweetness and layers of fruit are buttressed by high
tannin, good acidity, and unbelievable precision and purity. This profoundly
concentrated, full-bodied tour de force in winemaking is Madame Valette's
crowning achievement, and it will be talked about for decades to come."
