About this Item

Pomerol, 2012
3 (1 x 3) 750ml
The vineyards of Trotanoy were planted in 1761 and since the end of the eighteenth century, Trotanoy wines were considered as one of the best of Pomerol. In 1953 Château Trotanoy was sold to Jean-Pierre Moueix. The 7.2-hectares of vineyard slopes have a fascinating soil diversity consisting of gravel, clay, a subsoil of red gravel and hard, iron-rich soil.

Critics Ratings

'Tasted blind at the Southwold Bordeaux tasting. The 2012 Trotanoy is clearly blossoming in bottle. Over almost 20 years of tasting out of barrel, I cannot recall a Trotanoy that has so surpassed its showing at en primeur. It has a well-defined bouquet that initially seems straightforward. Don't be fooled...it opens in the glass and reveals subtle red berry fruit, truffle and ferrous aromas. There is stunning definition and poise here. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin. There is a core of wonderful Cabernet Franc here, the acidity extremely well judged with a precise, sustained finish. This is a sophisticated Pomerol with élan and no more, no less than a fabulous Trotanoy.' - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (RobertParker.com), 96/100 (2016)
