Other Reviews....
The most muscular, structured wine in the Mouiex portfolio is the 2021 Trotanoy, a medium to full-bodied, ample and layered Pomerol evocative of cherries, licorice, loamy soil, black truffles and spices. Impressively concentrated and tightly wound, it will reward bottle age.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Apr 30, 2022)

The 2021 Trotanoy was picked September 27 to October 4. This has one of the most marine-influenced aromatic profiles among the Pomerol wines tasted, very well defined and even uncompromising in some ways, revealing touches of iris flower and sea cave. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins. A typical Trotanoy structure: maybe aloof in some ways, yet compelling at the same time. Sappy on the persistent finish. This should turn into a very cerebral Pomerol that will appeal to those who adore this estate. Not for the first time, this is JP Moueix's star this year. Drink 2030-2065.

Neal Martin - Vinous

A very fine-tannined red with ultra-fine, polished and velvety tannins that run the length of the wine. Medium-bodied. Very classy.

Classic Trotanoy austerity and structure define the 2021 Château Trotanoy, which is tight and reserved on the palate, with medium-bodied richness and ripe yet certainly present tannins. Offering solid aromatics of red and black fruits, graphite, liquid violets, and loamy earth, it has rock solid mid-palate depth, and while it's not massive, it's no lightweight either. It will benefit from bottle age.

Asian spice, truffle, chocolate, espresso, fennel and dark red pit fruits are all over the place, on the nose and palate here. Classic, vibrant, refined, and also reticent at the moment, this reminds me in some ways of the best attributes from previous classic vintages that are now aged into maturity. The finish is filled with dark, red pit fruits, espresso, spice, and a touch of fresh mint with a hint of salted plums on the backend. The wine is produced from 100% Merlot. The harvest took place September 27-October 4. Drink from 2026-2055.

Jeff Leve - The Wine Cellar Insider

Smoked wild berries, with fragrant cherries on the nose. The texture stands out straight away, smooth, broad, muscular but also sleek, refined and precise. Flavours of bright cherries and raspberries with smoked earth and liquorice nuances coarse across the palate lifted by the acidity but not overpowered by it. The gently gripping tannins have a chalky, liquorice tang to them, settling on the tongue and providing the support and frame. This feels well worked, quietly confident - extremely well delivered and charming. It has both the concentration and glamour that Pomerol does so well. A layered but also lifted take on the vintage with clear ageing potential. Drink 2027 - 2050.
