With its 33 ha, Château Troplong Mondot is considered a large estate as the majority of properties in this area are usually no bigger than 10 ha. It sits on the top of a hill (106 meters) and dominates the surrounding countryside; the gentle south west slope overlooks the village of Saint-Émilion and the sharp hill facing south extends to Château Pavie. The vineyard is planted on this plateau where it has optimal sunlight and perfect natural drainage. The average age of the vines is twenty years old, they flourish and reach perfection in a limestone clay soil enhanced with sedimentary fragments of flint and chalk. It is this secret alchemy that makes the quality of our ‘terroir’.
Our vineyard is planted traditionally with the best varietals of this area of Bordeaux. Merlot is the royal varietal of this region and the most widely planted, it gives our wines their powerful structure, in other words, their body and flexibility; whereas Cabernet Franc gives them finesse and elegance, and Cabernet Sauvignon, personality and long life.
