Château Trotanoy Red Bordeaux Blend Pomerol 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

*The 2009 unquestionably surpasses the 1982* (which was the finest effort since the 1961) and eclipses anything made since. *By far the greatest Trotanoy of my professional career,* the 2009 boasts a dense plum/purple color as well as a meaty, earthy nose buttressed by enormous quantities of black fruits, cherries, and spice. Abundant glycerin, viscosity, purity, and elegance are all part of this massive, exuberant, powerful Trotanoy. *One of the most prodigious wines of the vintage,* it should come into its own in 8-10 years, and last 30-40 years thereafter. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (97-100 pts.)*We will notify you on arrival Summer 2012.*

Beneath the surface tannins is great Merlot fruit, very ripe and full-bodied, a powerhouse of flavors. The depth and complexity of the wine is all there, along with a dark core of dryness. A wine for long-term aging. Cellar Selection. Wine Enthusiast. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Trotanoy 1500ml

An absolutely prodigious wine the dense purple 2009 Trotanoy exudes extraordinary notes of minerals forest floor sweet black currants and black cherry jam along with floral notes and graphite. Very full-bodied with silky tannins fabulous opulence and palate presence this terrific wine should be at its best in 7-10 years and last for 20 or more. Think of it as a more concentrated "bigger" version of the extraordinary 1998. 98+ Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

I don't know what the 1961 Trotanoy tasted like in its youth, but the 2009 unquestionably surpasses the 1982 (which was the finest effort since the 1961) and eclipses anything made since. By far the greatest Trotanoy of my professional career, the 20... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Trotanoy 750ml

A deep nose of blueberries with chocolate mousse that turns to licorice and hints of rose petal. Full-bodied with velvety tannins that fill your mouth. But they are always soft and caressing. They last for minutes. I love the texture to this wine; it is like plush velvet. Best in 2018 but so inviting now. James Suckling.

The 2009 Trotanoy is flat out magnificent and clearly one of the top handful of wines made in Bordeaux in this vintage. Of all the Pomerols that I tasted on this trip only Pétrus is superior to Trotanoy as this wine is simply a great classic in the making. The utterly profound and regal nose offers up a glorious mélange of plums black cherries raw cocoa herb tones woodsmoke a stunningly complex base of soil coffee bean a hint of the blood orange to come and a very discreet framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep full-bodied and flawlessly balanced with a huge core of pure fruit stunning focus and balance plenty of ripe tannins and an endless utterly seamless finish. The 2009 Trotanoy is a very powerful vintage for this wine but is so breathtakingly poised and light on its feet as to almost belie its amazing depth and intensity. One of the greatest young vintages of Trotanoy I have ever tasted this is a masterpiece of traditional Pomerol in the making. Amazingly this is the ripest wine in the entire Moueix stable this year as it weighs in at a full 14.3 percent alcohol and yet is utterly cool in the mouth. A profoundly great wine. 2022-2075+. John Gilman.
