2008 Trotanoy, Pomerol

SKU #1081114 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Tasted blind as a vintage comparison at the Valandraud vertical, the 2008 Trotanoy has an attractive bouquet with engaging clarity and purity: raspberry preserve, wild strawberry, a trace of something almost medicinal just below the surface. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and a crisp line of acidity, subtle notes of cedar and tar infusing the red berry fruit with a composed, structured finish with plenty of freshness and vigor. Classic in style, well crafted and sure to give another two decades of pleasure, this is a stupendous Trotanoy that is up there with the 2009 and 2010 . Yes, it's that good and in fact, it kept on improving as it opened in the glass. Tasted December 2016. (NM) Inner quote mark (2/2017)

95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is very muscular for the vintage, with blueberries, minerals, flowers and stones. Full bodied and powerful with beautiful rich tannins and a long, long finish. So much going on. Let it go for five or six years. Inner quote mark (12/2010)

94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark An impressive wine, showing its power and concentration in a structure integrated with chocolate, bitter coffee and spice. Black plum notes add a juicy character to this powerful wine. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full, deep red-ruby. Brown spices, milk chocolate and minerals complicate intense dark berry, black fig and plum aromas. Sweet, lush and broad on entry but with firm acidity giving the wine a light touch, then multilayered and opulent in the middle, with unctuous dark fruit, coffee and earth flavors. Finishes ripely tannic, smooth and powerful. This extremely impressive Trotanoy is quite accessible already but has the stuffing to age well and improve for another 20+ years. Super wine. Inner quote mark (8/2011)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is a more powerful expression of Pomerol, with black tea and tar notes framing the core of blackberry and plum fruit. Loam, roasted tobacco leaf and braised cèpe notes fill in on the finish. This should be fun to age. (JM) Inner quote mark (4/2011)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Tasted blind. Deep crimson. Intense, rich nose with some real interest and the tannins and acidity subsumed by ripe fruit. Lots of energy here. Long. Good attack. 18/20 Inner quote mark (3/2018)
