2010 La Mondotte 75CL
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's 4.5-hectares of vines grow on the clay-limestone plateau east of Saint-Emilion. This small gem of a vineyard has all the natural attributes of a Premier Grand Cru Classe.
The terroir consists of very silty clay overlaying a rocky subsoil. This shallow, meagre soil induces excellent water regulation and is propitious to deep rooting. Fine natural drainage combined with outstanding sunshine make for early and complete ripening. The grapes, especially Merlot, are picked under ideal conditions every year.
Dating from the 19th century, La Mondotte has been certified organic since 2014."
