The 2019 Trotanoy was picked on a single day - 21 September and is matured in 50% new oak. Now this has a more backward bouquet than say Hosanna or La Fleur-Pétrus, biding its time before revealing extraordinarily pure black fruit laced with ethereal crushed stone and discrete blood orange scents. It displays astonishing delineation. The palate is utterly harmonious, quite dense yet refined and graceful. Hints of dark chocolate and truffle emerge towards the finish as it fans out gloriously. Quite simply, one of the best Pomerols...again. Tasted: June 2020; Rating: 97-99 Points; Antonio Galloni; Vinous.com

The opaque purple-black colored 2019 Trotanoy slowly emerges from the glass with mystic notes of incense, iron ore, woodsmoke, black truffles and fragrant earth, giving way to a powerful core of ripe black plums, black cherry compote and mulberries with hints of graphite, crushed rocks and moss plus an enchanting waft of iris. The medium to full-bodied palate reveals a heart-thumping interplay between profoundly rich black fruit and an incredible array of mineral and floral sparks, supported by firm-yet-approachable ripe, rounded tannins and tons of freshness, finishing on a persistent ferrous note. Just magic. Rating: 97-99 Points; Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate

As is so often the case, a different frame and a different conversation is going on at Trotanoy. It's a little darker fruit than many in the vintage, with firm and plentiful tannins, really knitted down cassis and bilberry that opens up through the palate and adds on layers of earth, slate, liquorice, coffee and chocolate, but all holding themselves back, content to be subtle hints at this stage of the process. Hard to argue with. A yield of 32hl/ha. Unusually 100% Merlot. Drinking Window: 2027-2048; Rating: 98 Points; Decanter
