A real treasure located in the heart of the Saint-Emilion appellation, La Mondotte is a small property whose origins date back to the beginning of the 19th century. In 1971, it was acquired by the family of the Counts Von Neipperg, and today Stephan Von Neipperg is in charge of its management, with the objective of producing an exceptional wine each year in collaboration with the advice of oenologist Stéphane Derenoncourt. The entire vineyard has been managed in Organic Agriculture since 2014.
La Mondotte will reach the title of Premier Grand Cru Classé at the 6th edition of the Saint-Emilion classification in 2012, a position it still holds today.
La Mondotte covers a small vineyard of 4.5 hectares planted on clay-limestone soil resting on a bedrock. The grape varieties are 75% Merlot and 25% Cabernet Franc. The wines are aged for 18 months in 100% new barrels.
La Mondotte is a Rare and classy wine, marked by fine tannins and opulent aromas. A wine decidedly apart from the Rive droite of Bordeaux.
