Parker   97-99

Lisa Perrotti-Brown. The medium to deep garnet-purple colored 2018 Trotanoy is made of 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc. The first sniff and WOW, it gives an incredible perfume of red roses, candied violets, molten licorice and spice cake over a core of plum preserves, raspberry compote, dried mulberries, iron ore and camphor plus a waft of woodsmoke. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is laden with exquisitely polished, beautifully poised red and black fruit layers with loads of mineral sparks, framed by super ripe, rounded tannins and wonderful freshness, finishing very long, culminating in a lingering ferrous note.

Decanter   98/100

This is powerful and beautiful, pulsating with black fruits, liquorice and confident tannins - it doesn't just walk the line, it owns the line. While it perhaps doesn’t quite have the pure and absolute majesty of 2010, it is another crazy good year for Trotanoy offering an unusually seductive charm along with the power. There’s no question that the vintage was handled with aplomb; there’s not the slightest trace of the warmth of the summer with the feeling that the wine ate it right up just taking what it needed. 98-100 points.

James Suckling   98-99/100

This is such a pinpointed and precise wine that shows a fantastic center palate of ripe and rich fruit with a combination of chocolate and cedar. Full-bodied, racy and focused. Lasts for minutes.

Jancis Robinson   17.5/20

90% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc. Barrel sample. Black core with deep cherry rim. Sweet black fruit with a touch of vanilla. Darker and more savoury on the palate, with lovely freshness that is both acidity and tannins. Fine-boned even with all this fruit concentration and aromatic richness. Thick, compact chewy tannins that build in the mouth and need plenty of time in the bottle but the balance is there for a long life though there is a slight hardness on the finish at the moment.
