Tasting Notes Trotanoy 2007
Tasted at Corney & Barrow's Pomerol dinner. The 2007 is of course, very closed on the nose with broody dark blackberry, cedar, sous-bois and a touch of graphite. Just hint of fireside hearth in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with a grainy texture on the entry, good acidity with an almost citric edge, masculine and structured towards the finish. Good potential here, but it needs 5-8 years to lose its infant temper. Tasted April 2011.
Revealing surprising density for a 2007, this elegant, dark plum/ruby-colored Pomerol exhibits sweet notes of iron, black currants, cherries, truffles, and herbs. Drink this deep, full-bodied, muscular offering over the next 12-15 years. I would not be surprised to see it put on weight and merit an outstanding score with a few more years in the bottle.
