You have to like the plum floral and berry aromas in this wine. Medium- to full-bodied with firm tannins and a silky finish. Subtle sweet fruit at the end. Best after 2007. 1665 cases made. -JS

Subtly sweet aromas of maraschino cherry iron and minerals. Suave on entry then sweet supple and fine-grained with captivating somewhat cool red berry floral and smoky oak flavors. Not a powerful or hugely deep style but floral and classy. Finishes with firm tannins that avoid dryness.

Unmistakably Pomerol. with a nose of wild mushrooms iron hints of milk chocolate and black cherry. With the passing of eight years it seems safe to say that it has proven the fruit core could stand the test of time and it still has an assuring freshness. The finish is superlative--very long and focused with soft silky sweet tannins. It should last for another 5-8 years possibly longer. However if you're looking to experience bottle-aged Pomerol now without breaking the bank this is a sound choice as the 2002 is a very well-balanced elegant Pomerol that with a little decanting is drinking quite well.

Winery

Trotanoy

Pomerol’s famous Trotanoy, whose soil was too hard to work and thus called “trop anoi” (too annoying) in medieval French, is located on one of the most beautiful parts of the Pomerol plateau. The fascinating soil diversity—half gravel mixed with clay and half deep black clay —with the presence of “machefer” or iron pan in the subsoil, brings power, depth and complexity to the wine.

Chateau Trotanoy’s vineyard was one of the few not to freeze in 1956 and today, it is comprised of very old vines, the average being close to 35 years. 90% of the vines are Merlot, the rest Cabernet Franc.

Trotanoy was acquired by Ets. Jean-Pierre Moueix, who own many other properties in both Pomerol and Saint-Emilion, including Magdelaine, Belair-Monange, La Fleur-Petrus, Lafleur-Gazin, Lagrange, Latour a Pomerol, and Hosanna.
