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.
91-93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - April 2013
Purple ruby. Intense scents of ripe blackberry, blueberry, violet, and aromatic herbs on the knockout nose. Large-scaled, fat and dense, with harmonious acids providing lift and clarity to the red and black fruit flavors. Finishes very long and smooth, with a repeating peppery herb nuance and insidious sweetness.
