- 1999 Château Troplong Mondot - France, Bordeaux, Libournais, St. Émilion Grand Cru (7/12/2006)
Dark, impenetrable colour. The nose is massively spoofulated. There is dill-like oak, vanilla-like oak, glossy oak, chocolatey oak, ripe and dark toned fruit, and plentiful sweet raspberry liqueur and alcohol. The palate is over-extracted, over fruity, lacking in acidity and savouryness, massively oaked. Where is the earthiness and minerality and herbalness and red toned fruit of St-Emilion? Bordeaux? This? No!!!! This is an abomination!
