(05-2007) A deep garnet core with deep brick rim though it is not quite as clear as I was expecting. A fine multi-faceted nose of dates, sous-bois, graphite and tar, then a touch of liquorice developing. A soft entry, the first where the tannins have matured enough to be pleasurable. Raspberry, tar, a touch of savoury fruits on the mid-palate. Harmonious but there is a touch of rusticity here which I find endearing. Clams up on the finish indicating that it could do with another five or six years cellaring. Very impressive. Drink 2012-2035. Tasted May 2007.

(01-1998) Lots of red berry character, with undertones of wet earth and fresh mushrooms. Full-bodied, with a bounty of fruit and loads of velvety tannins. Long, sweet fruit and caressing texture mark the finish.

Château Trotanoy

Château Trotanoy, Pomerol et Lalande-de-Pomerol. This illustrates that thought the name meant in Old French word too anoia "or" too boring "(when working the land) is located on one of the best exposed portions of the famous plateau of Pomerol and was acquired in 1953 by the firm Jean-Pierre Moueix, since operators. The soil mix - half of them serious based on clay and half deep black clay - on a bed of iron dross, giving the wine both power and depth and a complexity. The vineyard Chateau Trotanoy partly saved by the dramatic frosts of 1956, is approaching an average age of 35 years. It is cultivated in the traditional way (regular plowing, thinning, stripping) and picked up ideally in two or three afternoons. Fermentations take place in cement vats and the young wine is then aged in oak barrels, half of which is renewed annually. . Castle Trotanoy among the most sought after wines of the appellation and can be kept for decades in the great vintages. .
