Decanter: True to character. Subtle and reserved on the nose but exudes depth and power. Dark fruit and mineral complexity apparent. Beautifully structured palate combining the richness of fruit, abundant, ripe tannins and freshness. Overall great harmony and staying power. 96 Points

Tasting Notes
Wine Spectator: Packed from the get-go, with tightly coiled dark fig, blackberry and black currant paste notes, while singed alder and juniper accents form the frame. Roasted tobacco and dark earth elements takes over on the brick house finish. A very strong showing. 96 - 99 Points
Ratings
James Suckling: The depth of fruit and length to this is spectacular with blackberry, wet earth, dark bitter chocolate and blueberry character. It’s full and powerful and absolutely seamless. Perhaps the greatest wine ever made here. 93% merlot and 7% cabernet franc.
Awards
Wine Advocate: The 2015 Trotanoy is a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. It has a fragrant bouquet, unusually understated and introverted for Trotanoy, with tightly wound, gravel-scented black fruit, touches of dried orange peel and truffle in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, tensile tannin. Again, this feels compact, dense, a coiled spring perhaps, but there is plenty of energy here. Perhaps in the long-term, the Hosanna and the La Fleur Petrus might be the picks from JP Moueix in this great Pomerol vintage, but Trotanoy always springs a surprise once in bottle. Trotanoy - an enigma eternal, but we would not want it any other way.
Vineyard Notes
Trotanoy castle belongs since 1953 to Etablissements Jean-Pierre Moueix,. His vineyard, composed of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, has 7.2 hectares on the plateau of Pomerol. The soil is particularly qualitative, consisting of serious and deep black clay on a bed of iron oxide.
