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.

(WA94-96 points) The 2015 Trottevieille is blend of 49% Merlot, 49% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 28 September and 9 October matured in 100% new oak. 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

This estate always produces serious wines, but with this vintage it has added a layer of sumptuous fruit that enhances the complex, dark profile. A strong texture and concentrated tannins are balanced by the juicy black-currant flavors and powerful aftertaste. Drink from 2026.

The 2015 Trotte Vieille has an attractive bouquet with cedar and tobacco-tinged red fruit, well defined and poised with more terroir expression that many of its peers. 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

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.

Another wine that is better from bottle than the barrel, the wine has richness, chocolate covered red fruits, licorice, and espresso. 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.
