Chateau Trotanoy

31

An unexciting, somewhat indifferent style of wine, the medium garnet color offers up a nose of mushrooms, earth, licorice, and some ripe cherry fruit. In the mouth there is not much concentration and some dry astringent tannins in the finish. It is not going to get any better, but it is certainly capable of lasting for up to a decade. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. Last tasted, 2/02.

Chateau Trotanoy

Chateau Trotanoy is a right bank winery from the Pomerol Appellation, based in Bordeaux, France. Like with all fine wines produced in this region it is unclassified, however, Chateau Trotanoy is held in high regard due to the great wines it produces year after year.

Chateau Trotanoy only received its current name in the early 20th century from Jean-Jacques Moueix. Previously it was known as Trop Ennuie, and enjoyed widespread recognition as a great wine, whilst under the supervision of the Giraud family.

The vineyards of this prominent estate reach over 7 hectares with a grape distribution of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. On average, 1,500 to 2,500 cases of Chateau Trotanoy are produced each year.
