Wine Critics Notes:

Vinous - Score: 95-97 (2020 June)

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.
