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.

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.
What a stand-out wine. 100% Merlot, picked 21st September, 7.2ha vineyard with average 32 year vine age. Lovely aromatics of red fruits on the nose, the palate captivating, the concentration is impressive, the tannins so precise holding the intense richness of fruit tightly with beautifully integrated acidity. A sensational wine, one of the best 2019 for me.
