Château Troplong Mondot wine
Château Troplong Mondot belongs to the Valette family, who are bringing it into the modern era. The estate was acquired by Alexandre Valette, a Paris négociant who already owned Château La France in Fronsac and purchased Château Pavie shortly after. In 1980 Alexandre's great-granddaughter Christine took over the reins of the estate, and ten years later her husband, Xavier Parienté, joined her. Together they work tirelessly to improve the vineyards and winery, and beautify the château. In 2006 their hard work was rewarded with a new ranking as First Grand Cru Classé. 

The vineyards of Château Troplong Mondot sit on a thick slab of limestone that covers a layer of fat clay and, below that, phreatic water. This clay-limestone soil, which is typical of the vineyards around Saint-Emilion, is enhanced by sedimentary fragments of silex and limestone. The old vines of Troplong Mondot (up to 90 years old, and 35 years on average) thrive in this terroir that provides the limited fertility necessary for grand crus and which may also be responsible for the splendid robe and excellent concentration of this wine. 

Château Troplong Mondot is farmed traditionally, according to lutte raisonnée (no herbicides, chemical fertilizers, or insecticides). The vineyards are plowed, and the vines are meticulously pruned. Debudding in the spring and thinning the leaves in July allow for optimal ripening. The manual harvest is timed according to tests for ripeness, tasting the grapes, and adjusting for the character of each individual terroir.
