Showing better out of bottle than it did from barrel, this wine has put on considerable weight. It is full-bodied, masculine (as most vintages of Trotanoy tend to be), with loads of earthy, foresty notes intermixed with black and red fruits, a meaty, almost charcuterie note to it, an inky/purple color, some sweetness on the attack, but then the tannins kick in, making the wine seem at least a decade away from accessibility to most consumers. The texture is layered, the purity impressive, and the overall symmetry, balance and integration of all of the wine's building blocks are flawless. Forget it for 10 years and drink it over the following 35 years. Bravo! - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Dense and slightly chewy, this features girders of charcoal-coated grip running from start to finish, along with bay leaf, smoldering tobacco and warm tar.

Dense and slightly chewy, this features girders of charcoal-coated grip running from start to finish, along with bay leaf, smoldering tobacco and warm tar. But don't be fooled—there's also loads of fruit, offering dark plum, blackberry and black currant notes, laced with hints of mulling spice and alder. Terrific old-school grip powers the finish, and should easily pull this through two decades in the cellar. The brick-house Pomerol of the vintage. Best from 2017 through 2040. – JM

With less of the soft juicy fruit qualities found in some 2010s this favors firmer mid- and backpalates. While somewhat foursquare the wine still has a core of blackberry laced fruit and also maintains an underlying structure and foundation of dry firm tannins with a robust finish. This firmer styled wine emphasizes structure over fruit. Needs time in the near term five years or so. Best between 2021-2031.

Opens up with a little time in the glass to sweet licorice, blueberries and some graphite. Round and full on the palate with an amazing fruit and refined tannins. Truly superb. Hard not to drink now. Try from 2016.

Opulent rich supple and luxurious the refined black and red fruit wine is very strong. But it seems restrained like a race horse being held back from entering into a full gallop. This is not at the level of the other worldly 2008 or 2009. Those vintages remain the modern day reference points for Trotanoy.

Great depth and complexity to the aromas of raspberry, strawberry, baked bread, tobacco and black olive. Plush, sweet and remarkably mouthfilling, conveying a compelling creaminess of texture but also a magically light touch and outstanding finesse. The thick flavors of red fruits, cocoa powder, meat and forest floor are perfectly supported by very smooth but serious tannins. Finishes with great persistence. A real essence of Pomerol: one of the sexiest wines of my tastings this spring but it's hard to believe that this wine won't go through a sullen stage in the bottle.

Very eloquent and confident. Polished and aromatic. Lovely freshness. Fruit almost covers the tannins. 17.5 out of 20.
