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.

Deep ruby-purple. Deep, brooding aromas of blackberry and violet. Rich, dense and suave, with layered blackcurrant and cassis fruit flavors enlivened by a lovely mineral tang. The mounting tannins remain smooth on the very long finish. This balanced, densely packed beauty will develop slowly in bottle.
