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. The gravelly soil atop the Pomerol Plateau provides excellent drainage for the vines, improving grape concentration.

Expert Reviews

96(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March 2012

(a blend of 95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc; 3.5 pH; IPT 75;13.9% alcohol):  Saturated ruby-red.  Pure, fresh aromas of blackcurrant, black cherry, mocha and licorice, lifted by a whiff of violet.  Dense, sweet and stuffed with fruit, offering liqueur-like flavors of black cherry and mocha; remains very light on its feet thanks to wonderfully vibrant, harmonious acidity.  For such a strapping wine, this boasts very good energy and noteworthy precision.  Finishes long and ripely tannic, with repeating notes of milk chocolate and violet.  Jean-Claude Berrouet considers this to be "an absolutely classic Trotanoy."  I couldn't agree more:  it ought to prove to be one of the best 15 or 20 wines of a stellar vintage.
