Reviews/Information
"95 out of 100…From the luxury, 12-acre boutique outpost of the Neipperg family, the 2012 La Mondotte (generally 85% Merlot and 15% Cabernet Franc) has an inky/purple color, sweet mulberry, black cherry and cassis note, stunning purity and full-bodied texture. The wine’s opulence and voluptuous character compare to its greatest vintages, such as 1998, 2000, 2005, 2009 and 2010. Its great terroir (clay and limestone soils) shines through with a stunning effort in the vintage. Drink it over the next 10-15 years." - Robert M. Parker, Jr., Wine Advocate

"95 out of 100...Very intense nose showing orange peel, blackberries as well as ink and vanilla notes. Full-bodied red with chewy tannins, lovely acidity and a long, long finish. Complex and structured. Drink after 2019. - James Suckling

"94 out of 100...This pulls no punches, with loads of mint-kissed plum sauce, blackberry confiture and raspberry pâte de fruit flavors that cascade over one another, pumping though the polished, anise-framed finish. A gloriously pure expression of fruit, harnessed by a lovely, subtle chalky thread through the finish. Best from 2017 through 2030. 667 cases made. - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator
