Winery Info/ Brand



Chateau Troplong Mondot covers 33 hectares, and it is considered to be a large estate sitting on the top of a hill (106 meters) and dominates the surrounding countryside; the gentle south-west slope overlooking the village of Saint-Émilion and the sharp south facing hill extends to Chateau Pavie. The vineyard is planted traditionally with the best varietals of this area of Bordeaux. Merlot is the noble varietal of this region and the most widely planted, which gives the wine its sturdy structure, body and flexibility. The average age of the vines here are thirty years old, and they flourish and reach perfection in a limestone clay soil enhanced with sedimentary fragments of flint and chalk.

Region Info/ Origin



Saint-Emilion is a charming medieval village located in the heart of the famous Bordeaux wine area. It is a unique site where world-famous wineries, beautiful architecture and great monuments can be found. The legend tells a story about a monk, Emilion, from Brittany who fled from his hometown in Vannes to seek refuge in the eighth century. Living the life of a hermit, he accomplished a few miracles and rapidly became famous in the region and even far beyond its border. Even after his death his followers carried on his legacy and even named the town after his name. From the ninth century to the 19th century, men had the will to mine the soil in order to standardise the whole architectural looking of not only the city of Saint-Emilion but also a few ones in the region (such as Right Banc Bordeaux).
