Jancis Robinson 16.5

100% Merlot. Cask sample. Not the most powerful or dense Trotanoy but neat and concise. More open than usual at this stage with red-berry and blood-orange notes. Juicy and almost accessible, the tannins so fine they are practically invisible. But there is an undertow of structure that provides grip and persistence. Drink 2028 - 2040. James Lawther MW

Wine Advocate 93-95

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.

James Suckling 96-97

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

Vinous 94-96

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. Neal Martin
