Other Reviews....
The opaque purple-black colored 2019 Trotanoy slowly emerges from the glass with mystic notes of incense, iron ore, woodsmoke, black truffles and fragrant earth, giving way to a powerful core of ripe black plums, black cherry compote and mulberries with hints of graphite, crushed rocks and moss plus an enchanting waft of iris. The medium to full-bodied palate reveals a heart-thumping interplay between profoundly rich black fruit and an incredible array of mineral and floral sparks, supported by firm-yet-approachable ripe, rounded tannins and tons of freshness, finishing on a persistent ferrous note. Just magic.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Wine Advocate (Jun 2020)

The 2019 Trotanoy was picked on a single day - 21 September and is matured in 50% new oak. Now this has a more backward bouquet than say Hosanna or La Fleur-Pétrus, biding its time before revealing extraordinarily pure black fruit laced with ethereal crushed stone and discrete blood orange scents. It displays astonishing delineation. The palate is utterly harmonious, quite dense yet refined and graceful. Hints of dark chocolate and truffle emerge towards the finish as it fans out gloriously. Quite simply, one of the best Pomerols...again.

Wow. So tight with fantastic quality to the exquisite, polished tannins. It’s full-bodied, savory and beautiful. The tannins are nearly perfectly integrated, just melting into the wine. This goes on and on.

I suspect a perfect wine in the making, the 2019 Chateau Trotanoy is almost all Merlot (there is normally a splash of Cabernet Franc) coming from a 7-hectare vineyard on dark clay and slightly gravelly soils. Its dense purple color is followed by a heavenly bouquet of crème de cassis, earthy black cherries, unsmoked tobacco, graphite, and chocolate. This massively endowed, powerful Pomerol has loads of glycerin and opulence yet still shows incredible purity, finesse, and gorgeous length. It’s one of the most prodigious wines in the vintage and will be accessible with just 4-5 years of bottle age and cruise in cooler cellars for 40 years or more. Having the chance to compare the 2018 and 2019 over the coming of decades will be one of the greatest vinous experiences out there!

Beautifully deep, garnet in color, the wine rocks from the moment you check out the perfume with its all-star cast of roses, star anise, spice, smoked black cherry and plum nuances. Full-bodied, rich and so sexy, it is impossible not to be completely taken over by its decadent array of textures. Concentrated, opulent and velvety, the finish delivers an array of perfectly ripe, Pomerolian fruits with a gorgeous sense of purity. This was so good, I could not stop drinking it.
