Bordeaux Futures Pre-Sale - Pomerol - 98 Pts WA

Item Ships: Sep 30, 2019

The 2016 Trotanoy is a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc this year. It easily possesses the finest bouquet within the J-P Moueix portfolio. It blossoms in the glass with exuberant black and red fruit infused with minerals, black truffle and a hint of blood orange, yet there is always something enigmatic about Trotanoy at this primordial stage, something on which you cannot put your finger. The palate is medium-bodied with firm structure, slightly chalky tannins surrounded by wondrous, vibrant black fruit that shimmers in the glass. It is a brilliant Trotanoy that is bound up with energy and tension. Superb from start to finish, this is likely to surpass the 2015 and is one of the stars of Pomerol this vintage.

Ratings
Trotanoy more than delivers on its promise in this vintage, the purity of the black fruit, the confidence of its delivery, the depth of the flavours that just keep on giving. This has the line walking thing, where on the one side you have austerity, on the other you have richness, and it keeps tilting but never declaring its hand on either side. What a wine - fruits, minerals, texture, layers; crazy! 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. 98-100 points. Decanter
Awards
Wow. This is really powerful and structured with a tight and linear backbone of tannin's that run through the wine, making it a solid and beautiful thing. Full-bodied, layered and strong. Exciting energy here. 97-98 Points James Suckling.
