Winemaker's Notes

When ready, this wine shows enormous complexity and concentration and belongs to the most sought-after Pomerols. It can easily be kept 25 years or more in great vintages.

Critical Acclaim

"This is a strongly structured and impressively textured wine. The tannins shoot through, giving a sense of dryness. But in the center, the wine shows power through both tannins and fruit, with blackberries and red plums. It has a precision and shape that promises long aging."
95 Points

"Berry, coffee and tobacco aromas follow through to a full body, with well-integrated tannins and a long, caressing finish. There's a solid core of fruit. Powerful and structured. Best after 2014. 1,800 cases made."
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."
93 Points

"Bright ruby-red. Knockout nose melds dark cherry, minerals, coffee, iron, smoked meat and menthol. Wonderfully concentrated and primary, with a silky texture and captivating inner-mouth perfume to the cherry and mineral flavors. An impeccably balanced wine with impressive vinosity and energy. Finishes with sweet tannins and excellent length. This really transcends the vintage."

This famous growth, whose soil was too hard to work and thus called trop anoi (too annoying) in medieval French, is located on one of the most beautiful parts of the plateau of Pomerol and was purchased in 1953 by Ets. Jean-Pierre MOUEIX. The fascinating soil diversity - half gravel mixed with clay and half deep black clay - with the presence of machefer or iron pan in the subsoil...
