Introduction

Robert Parker:

‘Trotanoy is an expensive wine because it is highly regarded by connoisseurs the word over. Yet it rarely sells for more than half the price of Pétrus – a fact worth remembering since it does (in certain vintages) have more than just a casual resemblance to the great Pétrus itself.’

Notes and Reviews

Stephen Tanzer – International Wine Cellar 94:

“Bright ruby-red. Ripe but still inexpressive on the nose, offering delicate aromas of red fruits, violet, crushed stone, menthol and wild herbs. Silky and round on entry, then rich and suave in the mid-palate, with a hint of smoky minerality nicely complementing the pure red and black fruit flavors. This is a marvelously balanced wine of great breed and purity. Finishes long, sweet and bright, with very smooth tannins and less of the earthy, leathery qualities found in some other Trotanoy vintages. The 2001 vintage saw a large crop but down slightly from the levels of 2000 and 1999. The growing season featured a wet winter, a fine spring, a dreary July, a warm August (though not as hot as 2000) and a cool but dry September, with low rainfall in August and September. “The 2001 is a very pure, refined and classy expression of merlot–what Bordeaux can do so well,” according to Jean-Claude Berrouet.”

Robert Parker 90:

“This virile, muscular offering’s dense plum/garnet color is followed by aromas of saddle leather, undergrowth, and black fruits. Made in a brooding, medium-bodied, backward style for the vintage, it possesses good weight and richness, firm tannin, and a hint of truffles. Less charming and developed than La Fleur-Petrus, this powerful, structured 2001 requires 2-3 years of cellaring, and should keep for 12-15.”
