This wine has developed magnificently over the last 4-5 years. More backward and possibly even more concentrated than the 1970 Petrus (as well as more tannic) this huge old style massive thick rich wine is crammed with concentrated chocolatey berry fruit with a hint of leather smoked meat and licorice. The wine's opaque garnet color reveals no sign of amber. The nose is just beginning to open. The flavors are so concentrated that I am going to go out on a limb and say this may be the most concentrated Trotanoy made in the post-World War II era. I suspect this wine can still be purchased for a relatively good price. Owners should plan on drinking it between 2000-2030. One of the three greatest wines of the vintage the 1970 Trotanoy is the finest wine made at this estate save for the extraordinary 1961 and 1945.
