The tannins shoot through giving a sense of dryness. But in the center the wine shows power through both tannins and fruit with blackberries and red plums. It has a precision and shape that promises long aging.

Showing better than it did from barrel the 2006 Trotanoy does have one consistent characteristic that seems to be pervasive no matter what the vintage's style and personality is - an earthy big-boned brawny muscular... Showing better than it did from barrel the 2006 Trotanoy does have one consistent characteristic that seems to be pervasive no matter what the vintage's style and personality is - an earthy big-boned brawny muscular style. This wine is deep rich full-bodied with loads of meaty black cherry fruit intermixed with crushed rocks truffle and a hint of autumnal vegetation. The wine is broad deep and built for serious connoisseurs with cellars to wait it out. This wine needs 4-5 years of cellaring and should keep for at least two decades. It is an impressive Trotanoy but not one for those unable to defer their gratification.

Wine Spectator, March 2009
Berry coffee and tobacco aromas follow through to a full body with well-integrated tannins and a long caressing finish. There's a solid core of fruit. Powerful and structured. Best after 2014. 1800 cases made

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.
