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.
94-97 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2011
Good, full ruby. Complex but reticent aromas of strawberry, red cherry liqueur, violet, leather and black pepper. Dense, spherical and opulent, with a spectacularly silky texture to the middle palate and brooding flavors similar to the aromas. This massive Pomerol finishes with sophisticated sweet tannins and outstanding palate-saturating length. A great Trotanoy: my score may actually be too low. Drink from 2022 through 2050.
