In my opinion, this brilliantly run property should have been elevated in the recent reclassification of St.-Emilion. Opaque ruby/purple-colored, with a tight but promising nose of toasty new oak, black fruits, licorice, and spice, the 1994 Troplong-Mondot is built for the long haul. The wine possesses high tannin levels, as well as outstanding concentration and ripeness. It is largely closed except for some explosive sweetness and ripeness that appear at the back of the palate. Prospective purchasers should realize this wine requires 7-8 years of cellaring before it rounds out. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2015. RP
Very good ruby-red color. Spicy oak, black fruits, roasted coffee and almonds on the nose. Lush and dense, with a flavor of caramel. In comparison to the '95, this is a somewhat monolithic wine that could use more delineation. Tongue-coating tannins are ripe and soft. This seems almost too concentrated for its own good, while the '95 is more elegant if such an adjective can be applied to this style.- Stephen Tanzer (5/1996)
