2015 Trotanoy, Pomerol

SKU #1397561 100 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Breathtaking aromas of perfectly ripe fruit with blackberries, black olives, licorice, cedar and sweet tobacco. Full body, incredible depth and power, yet this is always in reserve and check. Everything is in the right place for this new legend from Trotanoy. Try it in 2026. Will age for decades in the future. Inner quote mark (2/2018)

98 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The power of this Trotanoy is unmistakable, and there is no question as to its confidence and poise. It showcases layer upon layer of graphite, liquorice, damson, slate, black cherry and cassis. There's fresh lift on the finish, and tannins that play with you for as long as you let them. Put this away for a decade. (JA) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

98 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Trotanoy is very clearly one of the wines of the vintage. In 2015, Trotanoy captures all the intensity of the year in its ample, full-bodied frame, and yet there is more than enough structure, energy and minerality to play off the wine's more overt leanings. A rush of black cherry, plum, graphite, leather, smoke and game punctuate the huge, tannic finish. What a wine! (AG) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Composed of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, the 2015 Trotanoy reveals a medium to deep garnet-purple color and comes prancing out of the glass with the most striking black fruit preserves, plum pudding, red currant jelly and blueberry compote notions, followed up by nuances of rose petals, chocolate box, licorice and menthol plus a waft of wild mushrooms. Full-bodied, rich and decadent, it fills the palate with generous perfumed black and blue fruit layers with a seductive frame of velvety tannins and seamless freshness, finishing very long and very minerally. (LPB) Inner quote mark (2/2018)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This wine is rich with tannins and superb fruit. The blackberries and black plums are succulent and chewy, giving the wine an opulent, ripe character. This 18-acre vineyard, with 93% Merlot, has produced an impressive wine. Drink from 2027. *Cellar Selection* (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is laden with fig bread, ganache, smoldering tobacco, warm currant confiture and fig paste aromas and flavors that rumble through a charcoal-tinged finish. Dense, but the grip is thoroughly melded with the fruit, giving this a very composed feel through the lengthy finish. Best from 2024 through 2040. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2018)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Managed by the talented Moueix team, the 2015 Château Trotanoy is a ripe, hedonistic, heady beauty that boasts awesome notes of ripe cherry fruit, toasted spices, fruit cake, and forest floor, with more floral and incense nuances coming through with time in the glass. A blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, this full-bodied, sexy, exotic, and beautifully textured 2015 has sweet tannin, moderate acidity, and a great finish. It needs 4-5 years of bottle age to round into form but will impressive for 20+ years. 95+ Inner quote mark (11/2017)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Notably dark crimson. Very savoury, with marked acidity and freshness. Yet it is more concentrated than any other J-P Moueix wine. A slow burner but should be exciting eventually. 17.5+/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (4/2016)

K&L Notes

96 points Neal Martin: "The 2015 Trotanoy has an intense bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit, still with a little new oak to be subsumed but there is wonderful delineation here with hints of bay leaf and smoke emerging with time. The palate is grippy on the entry. This is a Pomerol with great backbone and structure and yet there is also wondrous delineation and complexity, a crescendo of flavor with black truffle and allspice emerging toward the persistent finish. Outstanding. Anticipated maturity: 2023 - 2055." (02/2018)
