About this Item

1982 Pomerol
1 (1 x 1) 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

'Much less vibrant than 1990. Dry end. Smooth. Lighter than the 1990. Lightly spicy character. Much more open than the 1990 and with more pronounced acidity.' - Jancis Robinson MW, JancisRobinson.com, 17.5/20 (Sep 2012)

'Today, the 1982 Trotanoy is showing brilliantly, bursting from the glass with rich aromas of sweet berries, cigar wrapper, black truffle, petals and confit orange. Full-bodied, supple and sensual, its ample core of fruit framed by melting tannins, it's one of the most seamless, viscerally appealing wines of the vintage that remains comparatively underrated given its extraordinary quality.' - William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 97/100 (Dec 2022)

'Not quite as grand as I remember, but still a rich, pretty Pomerol. Dark ruby-garnet color, with tobacco, cherry and earth character. Full-bodied and concentrated, with firm tannins and a long, ripe fruit and dark chocolate finish' - Wine Spectator, 93/100 (Nov 1998)
