    A Stunning Pomerol with Endless Layers of Flavor

    Chateau Trotanoy was formerly named "Trop Ennui," in reference to its challenging Pomerol terroir. In 1953, the estate was purchased by the Moueix family and has, since then, become one of the region's top references. The property includes 7.2 hectares (17.8 acres) of vineyard land, planted with around 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The vines are 35 years old on average and grow in a combination of gravel and clay soils on the Pomerol plateau. Sustainable methods are used to cultivate these vines. The soil is tilled in four different ways and the management of vine growth is adapted to climatic conditions each vintage. During the winter, the vines are thoroughly pruned. The team also carries out extensive crop-thinning, de-leafing, and cluster stripping to reduce the yield of the vines and allow the grapes to reach full maturity before harvest. The fruit is sorted first manually in the vineyard and then optically at the winery. Winemaking is carried out in thermoregulated concrete vats, with the maceration and extraction kept very gentle. The wines mature in French oak barrels (around 50% new) for a period of 16-18 months.

    The Chateau Trotanoy 2015 blends of 93% Merlot with 7% Cabernet Franc. This phenomenal vintage shows off a deep garnet purple color in the glass. The aromatic bouquet is quite intense, mixing red and black fruit with hints of wet gravel and dark chocolate. On the palate, this Pomerol is full-bodied and powerful, with layers of fragrant fruit on a frame of velvety tannins. Elegant notes of black truffle and spices come through on an energetic and persistent finish. This vintage will age beautifully in the bottle for decades. To open 2023-2055.
