Trotanoy is a naturally profound, complex, richly concentrated wine with outstanding aging potential. The wine possesses a deep color and a dense, powerful nose, repeated on the palate with the addition of creamy, dark chocolate notes, and a singular concentration of flavor owed to its very old vines.

Benefitting from an exceptional location and terroir near Petrus, Le Pin and Lafleur, Robert Parker boasts 'when Trotanoy hits the bull's eye, it can easily rival its stablemate Petrus.' Planted to 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc and owned by the firm of Jean-Pierre Moueix since 1953, the Trotanoy estate is situated on soil of clay and gravel, with old vines averaging 40 years. The wines are vinified and handled in exactly the same way as Petrus, except only 40% new oak barrels are used each year.

Composed of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Trotanoy reveals a medium to deep garnet-purple color and comes prancing out of the glass with the most striking black fruit preserves, plum pudding, red currant jelly and blueberry compote notions, followed up by nuances of rose petals, chocolate box, licorice and menthol plus a waft of wild mushrooms. Full-bodied, rich and decadent, it fills the palate with generous perfumed black and blue fruit layers with a seductive frame of velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and very minerally.

Cellar Selection. This wine is rich with tannins and superb fruit. The blackberries and black plums are succulent and chewy, giving the wine an opulent, ripe character. This 18-acre vineyard, with 93% Merlot, has produced an impressive wine. Drink from 2027.

This is laden with fig bread, ganache, smoldering tobacco, warm currant confiture and fig paste aromas and flavors that rumble through a charcoal-tinged finish. Dense, but the grip is thoroughly melded with the fruit, giving this a very composed feel through the lengthy finish. Best from 2024 through 2040. 1,718 cases made.
