Troplong Mondot is classified as Premier Grand Cru Classé B in the Saint-Émilion classification. Under the previous owners, and their consultant winemaker Michel Rolland, the wine was known for its deep colour, concentration and full bodied style.
In 2017 the estate was sold and the new owners, the French Insurance group SOCR, brought in Aymeric de Gironde – to manage the estate, with new winemaking consultants. Many changes have been implemented.
The fruit is now picked earlier, they stopped harvesting by machine and started picking by hand. The style went through a complete change, reducing the amount of new oak and vinification techniques were also modified.
Today the wine is now fresher, less concentrated and offers more of a classic profile.
