About Chateau Trotanoy

Back in the late 18th century when Chateau Trotanoy was owned by the Giraud family, the estate went by a different name: Trop Ennuie. This literally translates to "too annoying," a reference to the stubborn soil. What is bad for agriculture, however, is often good for viticulture.

98 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2002

($3500) Medium-deep red. Slightly roasted, liqueur-like aromas of cherry, raspberry, roasted plum, caramel, dark chocolate and bonfire. A huge wine with great sweetness and chewy depth. Compelling flavors of jammy fruits and truffle. A massive wine kept miraculously firm by its minerally grip. The major tannins saturate the teeth and palate. Another magical '61, fully mature now but capable of holding for another decade or two. Had there been a vote for the wine of the weekend, this would certainly have rated among the top two or three bottles. The Rest of the 1982s
