The deep, pure and utterly brilliant nose soars from the glass in a blaze of red and black plums, black cherries, woodsmoke, coffee, chocolate, complex soil tones, fresh herbs and a seamless base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and utterly suave on the attack, with great intensity of flavor, a rock solid core of pure fruit, ripe, beautifully-integrated tannins and laser-like focus on the very, very long, poised and stunning finish. Perhaps this will turn out along the lines of the legendary 1975 Trotanoy?

There's lots of grip but this is still harmonious through the finish. One of the more backward wines of the vintage with an obvious tannic spine that needs some time to soften. Tasted non-blind.-J.M.

(WE93-95 points) A fine wine that shows crisp fruit and a dense, dry structure. This is solid, fruit-packed and firm.

Concentrated with layers of sensuous, fresh, pure, spicy plum and cherry flavors, there is a beautiful, refined, opulent and velvety textural quality to this elegant, sexy Pomerol.

A dark and structured version, with loam and espresso notes coursing underneath the core of crushed plum, steeped blackberry and black currant fruit. Lots of roasted mesquite and ganache accents fill in on the finish...   A dark and structured version, with loam and espresso notes coursing underneath the core of crushed plum, steeped blackberry and black currant fruit. Lots of roasted mesquite and ganache accents fill in on the finish. This is among the most backward of the 2011 Pomerols, showing remarkable stuffing for the vintage. Best from 2018 through 2032. 1,910 cases made.

The Trotanoy 2011 has a wonderful bouquet that soars from the glass: crushed raspberry and wild strawberry mixed with crushed stone. It has a crystalline quality that is uncommon in 2011. The palate is beautifully composed with very fine structure a touch of spice incredible focus and stunning precision on the finish. It has a tensile quality all of its own. This is a quintessential Trotanoy though one that is not in the same class as either the previous two vintages. Tasted April 2012

This shows very fine tannins for the vintage. Polished. Full body with a solid core of fruit and a long, caressing finish. Classy for the vintage. Drink in 2017.

Similar to the masculinity and robustness of Gazin, with more mineral content, this medium to full-bodied, muscular effort will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for two decades. Think black cherries, earth, baking spices and serious extract! 92+ - Robert M. Parker, Jr

Very deep aromas of cassis and bitter chocolate are complicated by sweet spices and peppery underbrush. Big and broad in the mouth but showing a slightly cool personality, offering mineral and floral flavors that are energetic and pure. A bit youthfully austere today, with firm acidity and gripping tannins not yet completely integrated, but the power and depth of fruit are obvious even at this early stage. Forget about this one in the cellar for at least ten years. Trotanoy offers a noteworthy step up in concentration from all the other Moueix offerings in 2011 with the exception of Petrus. - Ian D'Agata
