The 2016 Troplong Mondot has a very pretty bouquet of black cherries, boysenberry, crushed stone and light violet aromas that gains vigor with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied and a little fresher than I recall from barrel, with fine tannin and gentle grip on a poised, lightly spiced finish that just feels a little heavy. While I thoroughly enjoy this Troplong, it carries all the remnants of the style of winemaking under Xavier Pariente where everything it is turned up too high. I suspect it will be surpassed by the 2017. 15.5% alcohol.
