2018 TrotteVieille, St-Emilion (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1419199 98-99 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Wow. This really sends a tingle down my spine. Love the energy and length to this. Very distinguished. Full-bodied yet tight, polished and compressed. It has a great finish. Exciting. Really. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

95-97 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A light touch has come into this typically serious wine. The bright acidity and forward black currant fruits lift the tannins and spice. It has delicious freshness and concentration that will allow the wine to develop well. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

93-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 TrotteVieille is a super-intriguing wine. Aromatically deep and layered, the 2018 offers tremendous depth and textural finesse. Mocha, grilled herbs, black cherry, new leather and spice all wrap around the palate in a dense, racy Saint-Émilion. The blend is 54% Cabernet Franc, 44% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. (AG) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark There's a floral edge to the nose here that is clear from the start - the old Cabernet Franc vines and the limestone have served Trotte Vieille well in 2018. It has good juiciness, full of such beautiful signatures of the property, from its mineral, slatey character that scales the walls, to its creamy texture and brambly and raspberry jelly fruit, all finished off with a saline kick on the finish. Great stuff. 38hl/ha yield. 100% new oak. (JA) Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91-94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark The dark plum and red currant fruit is liberally laced with tobacco and sage notes, ending with a slightly austere edge. Solid but a bit unyielding. (JM, Web Only-2019) Inner quote mark

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Trotte Vieille leaps from the glass with vivacious scents of baked red plums, black raspberries and prunes with underlying scents of dried herbs, fallen leaves, dusty soil and tobacco. Full-bodied with a firm line of chewy tannins, it delivers a lot of stewed fruits on the mid-palate with a slightly warm finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (4/2019)
