A wine of the vintage candidate in 2008, Troplong Mondot’s offering was produced from yields of 41 hectoliters per hectare and achieved 14.5% natural alcohol. A classic blend of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, it offers copious quantities of blue and black fruits, a full-bodied opulence, sweet tannin and a fabulous texture as well as finish. Already drinking beautifully, it will be even better in 2-5 years and should last for 20 years. A great effort for the vintage, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving proprietor, Christine Valette. Bravo! Wine Advocate.May, 2011

En primeur barrel sample. A very dense, almost impenetrable nose with layers of dark, earthy fruit that change in the glass, revealing some intriguing coconut/almond scents from the oak. Very typical in style for the chateau with its firm robust tannins, good weight of fruit, dense blackberry, boysenberry and smoke-tinged finish. Very good length. Excellent. Tasted twice with consistent notes. Tasted April 2009. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

This is very serious and impressive for the vintage, offering silky tannins and cool, racy fruit, with nutmeg, blackberry and light vanilla character. – James Suckling , Wine Spectator 2009

Blackish, purple. Hint of farmyard on the nose. Plummy sweet - very chocolatey and Rollandian. Then rather obvious acidity and rather green tannins on the finish. Tannins very supple. Should deliver pleasure to modernists - eventually. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com

If Christine Valette wanted to make a statement (about the aborted 2006 classification) then she's done it with this wine. Dark, powerful, brooding, it has a massive weight of cassis flavoured fruit and tight tannic frame. Very impressive. Drink 2015-2028. Decanter.com
