Mondotte la Bordeaux Blend Wine 2012

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Sumptuous notes of mulberries spring flowers kirsch black currant liqueur graphite and spice appear more projected and evolved than in most barrel samples of La Mondotte. Extravagantly rich full-bodied and multidimensional with soft tannin and low acidity this is a precocious gorgeously proportioned effort that should be drinkable in 4-5 years. It will last for two decades. This is another spectacular performance from consultant Stephane Derenoncourt and proprietor Stephan von Neipperg. From a 12-acre estate situated high on the clay and limestone plateau above Pavie Decesse La Mondotte undeniably has one of the most outrageously fine vineyard parcels in all of St.-Emilion. The final blend of the 2012 was 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc that tips the scales at 14% natural alcohol. Yields were a minuscule 20 hectoliters per hectare. The harvest took place between October 9-18. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
