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 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.
