Planted to 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, the Trotanoy estate has vines averaging 35 years with just under 18 acres of vines. Since 1953, Trotanoy has been owned by the firm of Jean-Pierre Moueix, and is located one kilometer to the west of Chateau Petrus between the church of Pomerol and the village of Catusseau. Its prized soils of clay and gravel often produce wines of Second Growth quality, and in its history these soils have even made profound First Growth quality wines. Today, the wine is vinified and handled in exactly the same way as Petrus, except only 40% new oak barrels are used each year, so in that respect, Trotanoy is a relative bargain.

Wine SpectatorVery aromatic, with milk chocolate and red fruits. Full-bodied, with well-integrated tannins and a pretty, fruity finish. Not a big Trotanoy, but thoroughly enjoyable already. Offers lovely fruit for the vintage. Best after 2013. 1,915 cases made. -JS

Wine AdvocateRevealing surprising density for a 2007, this elegant, dark plum/ruby-colored Pomerol exhibits sweet notes of iron, black currants, cherries, truffles, and herbs. Drink this deep, full-bodied, muscular offering over the next 12-15 years. I would not be surprised to see it put on weight and merit an outstanding score with a few more years in the bottle.
