Why We're Buying

La Mondotte (Saint-Émilion Grand Cru) is a classic Bordeaux red blend. It's 80% merlot and 20% cabernet franc, with each grape coming from 50-year-old vines. The estate, which ages the blend in 100% new French oak barrels for 18 months, only releases 1,000 cases of wine per year.

Intense raspberry and plum compote flavors show juicy energy, backed by a liberal dose of roasted apple wood notes. Grippy and still a bit chewy, but the drive is there, along with a buried mineral edge that lingers. 96-99 Points (Blind tasted)
