Description

The freshness and elegance of a fine Saint-Emilion wine

The estate

The origin of the name "Trottevieille" dates back several hundred years. Legend has it that there was once a stagecoach stop near the chateau. As soon as a team stopped, an elderly lady trotted down to get the news, hence the name “Trotte Vieille” (meaning “the Trot of the Elderly”). This Premier Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Emilion, Chateau Trotte Vieille, is home to a small parcel of vines rescued from the terrible damage caused by phylloxera during the second half of the 19th century.

The vineyard

Chateau Trotte Vieille 2021 is a Saint-Emilion wine made from a 12-hectare vineyard that rests on reddish soil upon a limestone subsoil.

The vintage

The rainy winter was marked by alternating mild and cool temperatures. The beginning of spring was punctuated by two episodes of frost on April 7th and 8th. Although the hot and dry conditions in May favored a good flowering period, the cool and damp conditions in June led to rigorous monitoring by the chateau's teams, who worked towards preserving the vineyard's healthy condition. July and August were relatively cool with shifting weather conditions. The rainfall at the beginning of September gave way to a sunny and dry October.

Vinification and aging

The 2021 vintage inaugurates the estate's new cellars. Aged in French oak barrels (50% new and 50% second-fill barrels).

The blend

Cabernet Franc (54%)

Merlot (45%)

Cabernet Sauvignon (1%).

The tasting

Color

Brilliant, with a beautiful garnet color.

Nose

The nose combines fruity (cherry, raspberry) and floral fragrances.

Palate

A suave attack precedes a silky mouth which offers an alluring freshness, aromatic richness along with very fine tannins. The finish is persistent and reveals a salinity typical of its terroir of origin.
