Château La Mondotte

About Château La Mondotte

Château La Mondotte was purchased by the von Neipperg family in 1971, together with a few other estates in Saint-Émilion, including Château Canon-la-Gaffelière. Currently managed by Stephan von Neipperg, La Mondotte only began to shine around 1996 when Stephan gave his full attention to La Mondotte, after plans to merge the vineyards of Canon-la-Gaffelière and La Mondotte flopped. An early adopter of biodynamic farming,  La Mondotte quickly attained Premier Grand Cru Classé by 2012.

Perched on top of the clay-limestone plateau east of Saint-Émilion, with its closest neighbours being Château Troplong Mondot and Château Larcis Ducasse, the tiny 4.5-hectare vineyard of La Mondotte is planted to 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc vines averaging 60 years of age. Yields are among the lowest in Saint-Émilion, which give the wines of La Mondotte its characteristics concentration and power that is excellently balanced by the minerality from the limestone soils

La Mondotte 2000 (6x75cl)

Wine Advocate (98+)

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.

Wine Spectator (100)

Fabulous aromas of blackberries, chocolate, tobacco and cappuccino. Full-bodied, it starts off slowly with loads of fruit, but then it kicks off with the tannins. Blockbuster. Not obvious, but then wham. Score range: 95-100

Wine Advocate (96)

Deep garnet in color, the 2010 La Mondotte has a lifted nose of prunes, baked black cherries and balsamic with touches of spice cake, hoisin and smoked meats. The concentrated, full-bodied palate has compelling freshness, sporting a firm, grainy texture and loads of earthy/savory layers, finishing with epic length.

La Mondotte 2014 (6x75cl)

Antonio Galloni - Vinous (96+)

The 2014 La Mondotte is fabulous. Ripe, powerful and structured, with notable vertical intensity, it is wonderfully complete, not to mention hugely expressive. Inky blue and purplish-hued stone fruits, crème de cassis, licorice, lavender and violet build effortlessly as the wine shows off its beguiling personality. Even with all of its intensity, it finishes with notable precision and driven by distinctive chalk-inflected notes. A few years in bottle should help the new oak integrate. Today, the 2014 Mondotte is a real stunner. The blend is 80 % Merlot and 20 % Cabernet Franc.

Wine Spectator (97-100)

This is a towering display of purity, with unadulterated cassis and raspberry fruit coursing along live-wire acidity while light chalk, anise and black tea notes fill in. Has serious grip, but it's buried in that jaw-dropping core of fruit. And this has minerality to burn. A stunner.

Not shy, this pumps lush, dark plum, cassis and fig fruit forward, backed by contrasting waves of grippy tobacco and licorice snap. Dense and muscular until the finish, when a well-buried chalky minerality begins to emerge, adding refinement and cut. A big style, built for the cellar. Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2022 through 2042. — JM

Wow. This is very dense and powerful with linear tannins and vivid acidity that run straight through the center of the wine. It’s full-bodied with great freshness. Loads of blackberry character and a salty-mineral undertone. Extremely long in the finish.

La Mondotte 2019 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (97-100)

Magic stuff all the way, and certainly up there with the heavenly 2015 and 2016, the 2019 La Mondotte comes from a 12-acre vineyard of limestone (and some clay) soils located just above Pavie Decesse. It offers everything you could want in a Saint-Emilion with its rich, opulent texture, notable minerality, terrific balance, and an incredible sense of elegance, in both its texture and its tannins. Offering powerful notes of black cherries, blackcurrants, smoked earth, tobacco, chocolate, cedar, and violets, it has plenty of tannins, yet they're perfectly ripe and integrated. It's full-bodied, flawlessly balanced, and just a joy to taste today, yet it's going to benefit from 5-6 years of bottle age and keep for three decades.

La Mondotte 2020 (6x75cl)

Jeb Dunnuck (96-98)

A true blockbuster in the vintage is the 2020 La Mondotte, which comes from a tiny 12-acre parcel of limestone soils located near Troplong Mondot, Pavie, and Larcis Ducasse, on the upper limestone plateau. Emerging from the talented team of Stephan von Neipperg and brought up in new barrels, it has a wonderfully pure, clean, medium to full-bodied style offering integrated oak, a straight, focused texture, and incredible purity in its darker berry fruits as well as notes of gravelly earth and liquid violets. It’s common for the wines from the upper plateau to show more perfumed ethereal aromatics (as opposed to more richness from wines on the hillside), and this is incredibly perfumed, elegant, and aromatic while still offering density, structure, and length. It’s going to take 7-8 years to hit maturity, but it should see its 30th birthday in fine form.
