Tasting Notes Trotanoy 2006
Tasted blind at Southwold '06 Bordeaux tasting. The Trotanoy has exquisite definition on the nose: more floral with violets interlacing the blueberry, cassis and damson fruit, with underlying mineralite that will develop with time. The palate is medium-bodied, tensile tannins, electric acidity, muscular with lifted black fruits, well-integrated toasty new oak, leading to an opulent finish. This is just a baby, but what a bonny one it is. Great potential. Tasted January 2010.
Showing better than it did from barrel, the 2006 Trotanoy does have one consistent characteristic that seems to be pervasive no matter what the vintage's style and personality is
