The green notes that marred barrel samples of this wine seem to have disappeared by the time of bottling. Here, the Trotanoy 2007 has a compelling nose, broody at first but then offering touches of smoke and green bell pepper. Good definition and vigour. The palate is very plush on the entry with rounded mouth-feel, lovely caressing texture lending this Pomerol 2007s great sensuality. Not a powerful finish, but it is certainly very refined.

Very aromatic with milk chocolate and red fruits. Full-bodied with well-integrated tannins and a pretty fruity finish. Not a big Trotanoy but thoroughly enjoyable already.

Sexy, almost decadent aromas of plum, redcurrant, iron and smoked meat. Then juicy and bright in the mouth; began a bit lean and peppery but put on weight as it opened in the glass, without any loss of energy. Finishes with suave tannins, a note of cedary oak and lovely subtle length.

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.
