Description :
Showing better than it did from barrel, the 2006 Trotanoy does have one consistent characteristic that seems to be pervasive no matter what the vintage's style and personality is – an earthy, big-boned, brawny, muscular style.

Château Trotanoy

Any history of the vineyards of Pomerol must include some mention of Trotanoy. In an appellation where history can sometimes seem to be in short supply, Trotanoy is one of the more venerable estates, dating back to the time when viticulture was being established in the region. At the time it was in the ownership of the Giraud family, royal courtiers from nearby Libourne, and it was most probably they who were the first to plant vines on the estate, beginning the shift away from arable polyculture towards what we know is the case for Pomerol today, a situation in which the vine dominates the landscape absolutely.

Like Petrus, the vineyard of which is a little larger than that of Trotanoy, the harvest here may be finished in less than two days, even if the pickers are restricted to working in the afternoon after the warmth of the day has lifted the morning dew. The hand-picked fruit is delivered to the cellars, where it is vinified in small concrete vats for up to ten days, followed by a week of maceration on the skins.

Up until 2007 it was oenologist Jean-Claude Berrouet that oversaw operations in the cellars, as he also did at Petrus, but with his retirement he has been replaced by Eric Murisasco here and at the other Moueix properties except for Petrus, where Jean-Claude’s son Oliver has taken over. The vinification here is handled in much the same way as Petrus; it sounds wrong to describe it in this way, but we should remember that although Petrus and Trotanoy are separate estates, under different administrations, they are in truth under the control - as far as viticulture and vinification are concerned - of one man, Christian Moueix. Perhaps one of the most notable differences between the two estates is that whereas Petrus sees 100% new oak each year, the barrels at Trotanoy are typically only one-third to one-half new each vintage, and the wines is kept within typically for 18 months prior to bottling.

Notes de dégustation

Robert Parker : 93 points
"Showing better than it did from barrel, the 2006 Trotanoy does have one consistent characteristic that seems to be pervasive no matter what the vintage’s style and personality is – an earthy, big-boned, brawny, muscular style. This wine is deep, rich, full-bodied, with loads of meaty black cherry fruit intermixed with crushed rocks, truffle, and a hint of autumnal vegetation. The wine is broad, deep, and built for serious connoisseurs with cellars to wait it out. This wine needs 4-5 years of cellaring and should keep for at least two decades. It is an impressive Trotanoy, but not one for those unable to defer their gratification." (2009)
