Espérance de Trotanoy - Pomerol 2018
Chateau Trotanoy is a rich and powerful Bordeaux blend.
Purchased by Jean-Pierre Moueix in 1953, Château Trotanoy has been considered one of the Premier Crus of Pomerol since the end of the eighteenth century. The soil of Château Trotanoy is a very dense mixture of clay and gravel which tends to solidify as it dries out after rain to an almost concrete-like hardness, hence the name “Trotanoy,” or, in other words, “too wearisome” to cultivate.
The bouquet is rich and powerful with dark chocolate, black cherry, sage and boysenberry. The palate is juicy with zesty red berries and soft cocoa tannin structure, with a long herbal finish. Drink now or up until 2028.
90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc.
