1989 Trotte Vieille, Pomerol

SKU #1008830 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 he 1989 is an immensely impressive wine, exhibiting an opaque black color, and a sensational bouquet of licorice, chocolate, and super-ripe plums. In the mouth, the wine displays immense size, enormous concentration, a tremendous level of tannins, and an intense, alcoholic, long, opulent, low acid finish. Anticipated maturity: 1996-2015.  (2/1993)

Wine Spectator

 A wine of wonderful fruit but a slightly odd, earthy character; still delicious. Medium-ruby color and a garnet tint. Very ripe fruit, presenting funky barrel aromas that verge on mushroom. Full-bodied, with full, velvety tannins. Long, sweet fruit finish.  (5/1999)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Merlot

- A very popular red grape variety found in the great wines of St. Emilion and Pomerol. It is the most planted variety in Bordeaux, and it has also become an extremely fashionable red in many regions including California. Although it has a reputation to be smooth, and easy to drink when young, Merlot is also capable of producing extremely intense wines as well. It is often used as a blending agent with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
