Chateau Troplong Mondot is a Saint Emilion Grand Cru spread over 33 hectares, quite unusual in a region when most estates hardly exceed 10 hectares. The vineyards are planted on a mixture of clay, limestone and flint soils with a combination of 90% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc. The average age of the vines is 35 years.
Grapes are hand-picked and sorted, with care taken with selection to ensure that the best quality grapes are selected. Traditional winemaking methods are then used, before maturation in French oak barrels, of which 75% are new oak, for 12-24 months depending on the vintage. The wines are then blended at maturity before bottling. Natural egg whites may be used for fining if required. The average production is 60,000 to 90,000 bottles of Troplong Mondot per year.
