Chateau Troplong Mondot 1990 St. Emilion 1nc Bottle (4)
The collection comes from a great friend of Heritage Auctions who’s wines cellar organization and overall condition was near perfection. This consignment boasts over 100 Bordeaux OWCs stored in a temp-controlled, subterranean cellar that were kept in-the-dark and undisturbed for decades.
"A fabulous example, the 1990 Troplong Mondot is only equaled by such recent vintages as 2000, 2005, and 2008. The inky/garnet/plum/purple-colored 1990 exhibits notes of coffee, blackberries, licorice, camphor, and espresso. Rich and full-bodied with lavish fruit, high glycerin, low acidity, and stunning purity, it is still several years away from full maturity, and should last for another 10-15 years." (98 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #183, June 2009)
