Trotanoy 1993

Chateau Trotanoy

24 years

As a longtime fan of this property, I have been candid about my disappointment with most vintages of Trotanoy between 1983 and 1989. Certainly the 1990 appeared to be a return to the big, burly, concentrated style of Trotanoy produced in the forties, fifties, sixties, and early seventies. I am now convinced this property is on the rebound, as a result of sensational efforts in 1993, 1994, and the 1995, the latter wine the greatest Trotanoy since the 1970 and 1982. This is a wine to check out in the generally ignored 1993 vintage. Trotanoy's offering exhibits a saturated purple color, as well as a sweet, ripe nose of black-cherries, licorice, and earth. Top-class flavors, an opulent texture, medium to full body, moderate tannin, and an inner-core of sweet, jammy, concentrated fruit make this a terrific effort for the 1993 vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2018. A sleeper!

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.
