Tasting Notes Trotanoy 2008

96

One of the superstars of the vintage, the 2008 Trotanoy is a wine that transcends the vintage. Typically, this is not one of the more lush, sexy wines of Pomerol, but rather a muscular, masculine effort, and that’s the case in 2008. A deep purple color is followed by copious amounts of red and black fruit, earth, cedar and forest floor notes. The wine reveals a full-bodied texture, phenomenal concentration for a 2008, plenty of sweet tannin and a terrific finish. While it was surprisingly approachable, it will benefit from several years of cellaring and last 20-25 years. Bravo!

This is very muscular for the vintage, with blueberries, minerals, flowers and stones. Full bodied and powerful with beautiful rich tannins and a long, long finish. So much going on. Let it go for five or six years.

Tasted at JP Moueix, the Trotanoy 2008 has a surprisingly voluptuous, generous bouquet with dark cherries, soy, black plum, honey and faint touch of wild mint. Good definition and complexity. The palate is full-bodied with very firm tannins, great length and breadth to this wine, with blackberry, raspberry, a touch of tar, sage and rosemary. Once again, there is a lot of dry extract, but this Trotanoy has fabulous balance and harmony with a very long, slightly saline finish. It reminds me of the superlative 1998 in some ways. Drink 2015-2035+ Tasted October 2010.
