La Mondotte

About 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 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 Advocate (96-98+)

There was no frost here. Composed of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2017 La Mondotte simply sings of gorgeous ripe blackberries, mulberries and black raspberries with touches of sandalwood, lavender, licorice and rose hips plus wafts of garrigue and exotic spices. The palate is medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated with firm, very silky tannins and layer upon layer of black fruits and spices, finishing very long and beautifully perfumed.

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.
