With a massive 98-100 points from William Kelley, the 2022 Troplong Mondot, is an instant classic and will see immense demand. A focus on finesse and elegance in recent years has brought an army of fans to this excellent St Emilion estate.
Troplong has evolved and, for us and many others, is now just about unmissable, a superstar in an appellation currently making some of Bordeaux’s most exciting wines. It is one of the hottest tickets of the campaign.
The combination of high elevation and the deep clay soils meant that there was always immense potential here due to the excellent terroir. It now shines as earlier picking and more gentle extractions have resulted in charming wine of dimension, depth and quality.
The results have been incredible, and “the 2022 Troplong Mondot realizes all the potential of this striking terroir” and “transcended both my lofty expectations and anything produced at this address in the last 50 years” for William Kelley.
The score of this St Emilion from William Kelley puts it in very illustrious company. As is demonstrated by the table above, Troplong is up there with Canon, Cheval Blanc, Angelus and Figeac. The quality is incredible, and the relative price is astonishing.
All of this makes the price quite remarkable. A blue-chip St Emilion with a potentially perfect rating from The Wine Advocate is rarely this affordable, and it will be pounced on by shrewd collectors around the world.

A wine that transcended both my lofty expectations and anything produced at this address in the last 50 years, the 2022 Troplong Mondot realizes all the potential of this striking terroir. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of dark berries, cherries, exotic spices, bay leaf and orange zest, it’s full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, with incredible concentration without weight, supple tannins and a seamless, complete profile, concluding with a long, saline finish. All the work of the last few years in the vineyards and winery makes itself felt, as Troplong Mondot’s vineyards took the hot, dry conditions in their stride, and the quality of the fruit that they produced has been preserved by a gentle vinification and a discreet élevage, featuring only 55% new oak and some 20% of the volume in large foudres.
