Tasted at the Trotanoy vertical in Hong Kong, the 2001 Trotanoy is unquestionably a Pomerol that had to endure a difficult infancy before blossoming into the wine it is today. Indeed, both the reviews from Robert Parker and myself were lukewarm out of barrel and in its first few years, perhaps surprising considering the quality of 2001s in this appellation. Now with 15 years under its belt, it is developing far more complexity in aromatics, quite tertiary in style but with plenty of fruit and outstanding delineation. The palate is structured and firm, very focused with a tight grip in the mouth. Unusually, it is the 2000 Trotanoy that is more expressive at the moment since this 2001 is relatively broody and introspective compared to its peers. Yet there is so much energy palpable in this wine, plus a beguiling sense of harmony towards the finish. This is one to watch... Tasted November 2016. (RobertParker.com)


The 2001 Trotanoy continues to improve with each passing year in bottle and now with 15 years on the clock, it is just beginning to entertain the idea of "drinkability"! It has a compelling bouquet with intense red and black fruit, quite ferrous like many Pomerols, perhaps showing a little more vigor compared to the bottle at ten years old. The palate is medium-bodied, full of grip and sinew, impressive length and dimension with a slightly grainy texture. Like most Trotanoys, it benefits from decanting and do not be afraid to give this 5-6 hours, because it still threatens to clam up on the vice-like finish. Superb, but patience is needed. 2020-2050. Tasted September 2016. (RobertParker.com)


Lovely blackberry and cherry character, with a medium body, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Delicious red already but will be better with age. The finesse of Trotanoy. Best after 2006. (WineSpectator)

Purchased by Jean-Pierre Moueix in 1953, Château Trotanoy has been considered one of the premier crus of Pomerol since the end of the eighteenth century. The soil of Château Trotanoy is a very dense mixture of clay and gravel which tends to solidify as it dries out after rain to an almost concrete-like hardness, hence the name “Trotanoy,” or, in other words, “too wearisome” to cultivate.

The Trotanoy vineyard slopes gently to the west. The soil at the highest point of exposure contains a good proportion of gravel, becoming progressively more dominated by clay as the elevation declines. Under this clay is a subsoil of red gravel and an impermeable layer of hard, iron-rich soil known as “crasse de fer.” This fascinating soil diversity brings power, depth and complexity to the wine. Trotanoy is vinified in small concrete vats, while maturation takes place in oak barrels.

Trotanoy is a naturally profound and richly-concentrated wine, with immensely deep colour and a nose of great density and power, repeated on the palate with the addition of creamy, dark chocolate notes. With outstanding ageing potential, Château Trotanoy produces a wine of enormous complexity and depth, with an incredible concentration of flavour derived from its very old vines.
