Winemaker's Notes

For pairing with Bordeaux, look for the more refined and simply prepared cuts such as loin chops, rib chops and a rack of lamb. These classic dishes can be a divine pairing with Bordeaux. More aromatic, rustic and spicy preparations of lamb often call for a wine with a bit more of a chewy, rustic and herbal character.

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

"Dense and slightly chewy, this features girders of charcoal-coated grip running from start to finish, along with bay leaf, smoldering tobacco and warm tar. But don't be fooled—there's also loads of fruit, offering dark plum, blackberry and black currant notes, laced with hints of mulling spice and alder. Terrific old-school grip powers the finish, and should easily pull this through two decades in the cellar. The brick-house Pomerol of the vintage. Best from 2017 through 2040."
98 Points

"Think of this wine as the 1998 on steroids! Showing better out of bottle than it did from barrel, this wine has put on considerable weight. It is full-bodied, masculine (as most vintages of Trotanoy tend to be), with loads of earthy, foresty notes intermixed with black and red fruits, a meaty, almost charcuterie note to it, an inky/purple color, some sweetness on the attack, but then the tannins kick in, making the wine seem at least a decade away from accessibility to most consumers. The texture is layered, the purity impressive, and the overall symmetry, balance and integration of all of the wine's building blocks are flawless. Forget it for 10 years and drink it over the following 35 years. Bravo!"

"Stunning nose with wild strawberries, vanilla and raspberries. Opens up with a little time in the glass to sweet licorice, blueberries and some graphite. Round and full on the palate with an amazing fruit and refined tannins. Truly superb. Hard not to drink now."
98 Points

"Good, full ruby. Complex but reticent aromas of strawberry, red cherry liqueur, violet, leather and black pepper. Dense, spherical and opulent, with a spectacularly silky texture to the middle palate and brooding flavors similar to the aromas. This massive Pomerol finishes with sophisticated sweet tannins and outstanding palate-saturating length. A great Trotanoy: my score may actually be too low. Drink from 2022 through 2050.
Barrel Sample: 94-97 Points"
97 Points

"A complex wine, exhibiting smoky tannins, rich fruit, a dark texture and concentration. Produced by the Moueix winemaking team, it feels complete with its sense of style and elegance as well as weight. Give this powerful wine many years in the cellar. Cellar Selection."

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...
