2010: Owner Stefan von Neipperg and winemaking consultant Stephane Derenoncourt have fashioned a prodigious wine in 2010. This 11.5-acre gem of an estate sits on clay and limestone soils above Pavie and Pavie Decesse. The 2010's final blend was 80% M... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Shows the density of the vintage, with the charcoal, cocoa and melted black licorice notes holding sway over a core of plum, fig and blackberry fruit. Dark and brooding now, but the core of fruit remains succulent and visible through the end, with se... Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2010 Mondotte, La 1500ml

Good deep ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of raspberry strawberry menthol and sage. The palate delivers great sweetness and richness but with a compelling penetrating quality to its precise pristine red fruit and floral flavors. The seamless finish features great length and a lovely floral topnote. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc. Coming from a 4.5 hectare vineyard on a clay and limestone plateau with vines that average 50 years old. Yields were a low 20 hls/ha. Aged in 100% new oak for about 18 months. The nose offers sweet fruit licorice plum and vanilla followed by spice and truffle. Though full bodied the palate is elegant and refined as the tannins and acidity have integrated well to caress the palate seamlessly. Finish lingers with a kiss of roasted espresso bean.

La Mondotte comes from a 4.5-hectare vineyard that produced wine in this vintage from the ridiculously low yields of 20 hectoliters per hectare from vines that average 70 years of age. 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc formed the assemblage that will be aged in 100% new oak. The wine reached 14.% alcohol but with one of the lowest pH numbers I found in this vintage 3.2 there is a lot of freshness and pop to this wine. Inky black with purple accents licorice stone black fruit jam spice and mocha aromas rocket from the glass. Concentrated with luscious ripe opulent berries this tannic wine is expansive on the palate finishing with waves of fresh pure black cherry liqueur licorice and minerality. I asked Neipperg if producing a wine like this was risky. He responded with a smile saying "No risk no fun." Jeff Leve.
