First vintage of this occasional second wine. Their second wine policy: It’s very tricky to have a wine made just from vines on the edge of the vineyard but in 2009 there were two parcels that didn't make it – more an accident. None made in 2011, maybe an Espérance 2010. Gorgeous nose. Very opulent and creamy! Long. Rich. So hedonistic. Just slightly green/dry on finish. 17/20

Violet core with a slight ruby tinge at the rim. 100% merlot. Heady and tantalizing aromas of fresh flowers plum and blackberry are complemented by black pepper licorice and forest floor.

Heady and tantalizing aromas of fresh flowers plum and blackberry are complemented by black pepper licorice and forest floor. The palate is packed with layers of red and black fruit notes of mocha and herbs. Great texture makes this fine now after decanting but ideally this should be enjoyed in another 3-5 years then followed for the next decade. Serious wine this first vintage of L'Esperance de Trotanoy is worth seeking out! 500 cases produced.
