Presentation

Château Troplong Mondot, with its 33 ha, is considered to be a large estate, as the majority of the properties in this area are usually no bigger than 10 ha. It sits on the top of a hill at the highest point of the appellation, oriented at the four cardinal points and dominating the surrounding countryside; the gentle southwest slope overlooks the village of Saint-Émilion and the sharp south-facing hill extends to the limits of the valley.

Vineyard management

Xavier Pariente conducted an ecological study of the cultural profile of the parcelles (“plots”) to restore the biodiversity of the soils, in close collaboration with his winemaker Jean-Philippe Fort, and Claude and Lydia Bourguignon, specialists in sustainable development of soils. The vineyard was accordingly restructured and today, a third of the property is worked on only with horses.

At Troplong Mondot, a sustainable, original and innovative cultural approach is set up: for decades now, no insecticide nor pesticides have been used.

In 2006, ChâteauTroplong Mondot was promoted to the prestigious rank of First Great Classified Growth in the Saint-Émilion decennial classification.

Wine tourism

In 2010, Xavier Pariente created the first guest rooms on the property, and in 2012 the gastronomic restaurant Les Belles Perdrix de Troplong Mondot opened its doors. Its success was immediate.

In 2016, our Chef David Charrier obtained his first Michelin star.
