The Château Trottevieille 2014 offers an intense, deep and almost purple color. The nose expresses large and generous aromas of black fruits. This Saint-Emilion has vivacity, a dense tannic structure and a fine and meticulous grain. Notes of freshly picked blackberries coupled with a touch of fresh liquorice show the strengh and the structure of this wine. This charming classified growth of Saint-Emilion is one of the great classics of this vintage.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Trottevieille has a fragrant bouquet, quite understated at first and building with brambly red berry fruit, undergrowth and faint cedar-like aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fine acidity and a gentle, caressing finish that is silky smooth. This is a very refined Trottevieille, one that is far less rustic than in the past, the persistence on the finish suggesting that it should age in consummate style. This is a classy offering from the Castèja family.
