La Mondotte

The winery is located at the gates of the city Saint-Emilion (Bordeaux) in the same area. It dates from the early 19th century. In 1971 it was together with the Château Canon-La-Gaffelière from the Baden-Württemberg noble family Count Neipperg accepted. Since 1985, Count Stephan von Neipperg is responsible. Originally, it was planned to incorporate the wine of La Mondotte in the Canon La Gaffelière. However, this would have cost the classification as "Grand Cru Classé" in the second place.

Until the year 1995, the wine was vinified under the name "Château La Mondotte" on Château Canon-La-Gaffelière. Then large investments were made to meet the requirement of a possible classification. Since the year 1996, the wine now produced in its own winery is called "La Mondotte". In order to avoid confusion, the bottle, label and wooden box were recreated. In 2012, the company was classified as "Premier Grand Cru Classé B" (so he managed this jump directly without previous usual Grand Cru Classé classification). The vineyard covers 4.5 hectares and is planted with the varieties Merlot (80%) and Cabernet Franc (20%). The long-lived red wine is aged for 18 to 24 months in 100% new oak barrels.
