Rockss and Fruit

  • By Lyle Fass
    3/26/2005, (See more on Rockss and Fruit...)

    (Troplong-Mondot) This had a beautiful nose of cocoa powder, mineral, dripping cassis, tar, touch of herbs and dark blueberry. Structured like a Medoc on the palate with oodles of just this short of sweet concentrated fruit. Beautiful detail and precision along with a long finish. Needed 45 mins to really strut it's stuff but a great example of this "left-bank, right-bank" St. Emilion.

    A Mega 1990 Bordeaux Tasting with Clive, 3/21/2005 96+ points

    (Troplong Mondot) The nose had a early morning bakery, freshly baked bread nose full of plum liqueur, nut, olive and cedar. It was very kinky in its plum aromas, and cassis quickly got into the party as well. .Tons of alcohol,. Ray moaned. It was a bit masculine for Ray, the Beaujolais aficionado that he is, and Clive quickly dismissed the notion that there was too much alcohol. The Troplong had more minerals to its nose, with a nice palate full of more minerals, game and those St. Emilion olive flavors. Mike noted .a lot of cream. and called it one of those rare wines where he got more in the mouth than in the nose. The wine seemed a hair more powerful, ripe and fresh than the Beausejour and got a 17 ½ from Clive, and from me
