Minerals, limestone and rust to boot. Full-bodied, layered and tannic, yet the phenolic structure is all about strength with finesse. It lasts a very long time. The new classic from here... 1961 all over? Try in 2024 and behold. collapse

It has a very intense bouquet, tightly wound with red and black fruit, hints of truffle coming through with aeration and then it appears to calm down and achieve a wonderful level of definition. The palate is medium-bodied with superb clarity. It feels supple in the mouth, extremely pure and soaking up the new oak with ease. It has a lively orange sorbet and red fruit-driven finish that is silky smooth in texture, thanks to the fineness of the tannin. Cellar this for 5-8 years minimum and then revel in this ascendant Saint Emilion for the next three or four decades. - Neal Martin collapse

A strong texture and concentrated tannins are balanced by the juicy black-currant flavors and powerful aftertaste. Drink from 2026. collapse

The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity, licorice-tinged red fruit with fine delineation toward the poised finish. This is an excellent Trotte Vieille that probably will deserve a higher score with bottle age. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. -- Neal Martin collapse

Decanter,
Firm, toasty nose, very ripe but robust. The attack is splendid, with the Cabernet Franc contributing freshness and vigour to the palate, which is very concentrated but not overbearing.

The attack is splendid, with the Cabernet Franc contributing freshness and vigour to the palate, which is very concentrated but not overbearing. There’s fine tannic backbone and structure, and a long, spicy finish. This is classic St-Emilion, less flashy than some, with the new oak perfectly integrated.

The texture is soft, polished and caressing, the fruit has ripeness, elegance and flesh. There is length in the sweet, fruity finish. This is the best vintage of Trotte Vieille I have ever tasted!

Wine Spectator, January 2018
Solidly built, if a bit stolid, offering notes of singed juniper, cedar and tobacco and flavors of dried red currant, bitter plum and blood orange coulis. Best from 2023 through 2038. — J.M.

Give it a few years to integrate its oak and enjoy over the following decade or more. collapse
