Chateau Trotanoy

6

Only 1,000 cases of the 2013 Trotanoy were produced (about half of the usual production). One of the stars as well as a major sleeper of the vintage, it is an atypically big, rich, full-boned effort with enough tannin and depth to require 2-3 years of cellaring. There is lots of purity as well as a strong, underlying, earthy, iron-like component intermixed with plenty of black cherry and black currant fruit, and hints of licorice and truffles. This impressive medium to full-bodied wine is atypically concentrated and rich for the vintage. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.

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.
