Wine tasting note: 1996 Troplong Mondot Bordeaux

1996 Troplong Mondot Bordeaux

28th Apr 1999 GBP34 Bordeaux Table Red

Deep purple/red to deep red/pink rim.
Much more restrained nose than the Monbousquet, with some cassis and plum.
Medium bodied with sweet, stewed berry fruit, very hard tannins and a reasonable, dry finish.
Closed and much less attractive at the moment, it should show very well given 6 to 10 years to open out.
