Sleeping giant. Dark red color with a brick edge. Subtle aromas of mineral berry and mint. Full-bodied and very closed yet chewy and big. Grows and grows on the palate. Huge.--1990 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2005... Sleeping giant. Dark red color with a brick edge. Subtle aromas of mineral berry and mint. Full-bodied and very closed yet chewy and big.

Tasted at the Trotanoy dinner at Sketch in London. Tasting them side-by-side, it is clear that the 1990 Trotanoy is far superior to the 1989.

Tasting them side-by-side, it is clear that the 1990 Trotanoy is far superior to the 1989. It has a vibrant, ebullient, vivacious bouquet with blackcurrant pastilles, mulberry and crushed violets that blossom in the glass. The palate is tight at first but it opens up to reveal irresistible, velvety textured dark berry fruit tinged with thyme, mint and a touch of fennel. There is great density to the Trotanoy and certainly it remains youthful after 22 years, reluctantly evolving secondary aromas. This is a might Trotanoy that requires another ten years in the cellar.

(90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc; 3.68 pH; IPT 73; 13.3% alcohol): Bright red with an amber rim. Gamey aromas of black cherry, fig, leather, ink and spices; conveys an impression of rusticity.

Gamey aromas of black cherry, fig, leather, ink and spices; conveys an impression of rusticity. Fresh and lively on entry, then earthy and supple in the middle, with ripe acidity framing the black fruit and licorice pastille flavors. At once densely packed and lively, with a very long finish featuring substantial but smooth tannins and a trace of bitterness. This delicious, silky, open-knit Trotanoy is currently drinking well. - Ian D'Agata
