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.
90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2010
Dark red-ruby. Sexy, almost decadent aromas of plum, redcurrant, iron and smoked meat. Then juicy and bright in the mouth; began a bit lean and peppery but put on weight as it opened in the glass, without any loss of energy. Finishes with suave tannins, a note of cedary oak and lovely subtle length.
