Ratings and Tasting Notes:
WA=95+ Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. The Trotanoy has an exquisite definition on the nose: more floral with violets interlacing the blueberry, cassis and damson fruit, with an underlying minerality that will develop with time. The palate is medium-bodied, tensile tannins, electric acidity, muscular with lifted black fruits, well-integrated toasty new oak, leading to an opulent finish. This is just a baby, but what a bonny one it is. Great potential. Tasted January 2010.
AG=93 Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose melds dark cherry, minerals, coffee, iron, smoked meat and menthol. Wonderfully concentrated and primary, with a silky texture and captivating inner-mouth perfume to the cherry and mineral flavours. An impeccably balanced wine with impressive vinosity and energy. Finishes with sweet tannins and excellent length. This really transcends the vintage.
WS=93 Berry, coffee and tobacco aromas follow through to a full body, with well-integrated tannins and a long, caressing finish. There's a solid core of fruit. Powerful and structured. Best after 2014.
