Pomerol , Grand Cru
2009 Château Trotanoy Pomerol
An absolutely prodigious wine, the dense purple 2009 Trotanoy exudes extraordinary notes of minerals, forest floor, sweet black currants and black cherry jam along with floral notes and graphite. Very full-bodied, with silky tannins, fabulous opulence and palate presence, this terrific wine should be at its best in 7-10 years and last for 20 or more. Think of it as a more concentrated, "bigger" version of the extraordinary 1998.
For the first time at Trotanoy, 500 cases of a second wine were produced from 100% Merlot from a parcel that is often excluded from the final blend.
