Ch Trotanoy 2019
Pomerol€ 183.19/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 95-97/100
The 2019 Trotanoy is a powerful, searing wine. Far from an eaysgoing 2019, Trotanoy is going to demand cellaring. Today, the tannins are front and center, but there is enough persistence to get an impression of what is to come. Trotanoy is often a big, potent Pomerol. In 2019, those signatures are amplified in dramatic fashion, as the fruit really enrobes the tannins, resulting in a Trotanoy unlike any I have ever tasted. Christian Moueix adds that he harvested the entire vineyard in a single day whereas the gravel parcels are usually picked a week before the portions planted on clay.
The Wine Advocate – 97-99/100
The opaque purple-black colored 2019 Trotanoy slowly emerges from the glass with mystic notes of incense, iron ore, woodsmoke, black truffles and fragrant earth, giving way to a powerful core of ripe black plums, black cherry compote and mulberries with hints of graphite, crushed rocks and moss plus an enchanting waft of iris. The medium to full-bodied palate reveals a heart-thumping interplay between profoundly rich black fruit and an incredible array of mineral and floral sparks, supported by firm-yet-approachable ripe, rounded tannins and tons of freshness, finishing on a persistent ferrous note. Just magic.
J.M. Quarin – 96/100
Couleur sombre, intense et belle. Nez intense, fin, fruité et subtil. Nuances de framboise. Voluptueux dès l’entrée en bouche, riche au milieu, fondant, tout en offrant des saveurs profondes, le vin s’installe au palais avant de finir long, noble et complexe. L’équilibre est remarquable pour un 100 % merlot. 2027 – 2060.
