Tasting Notes Trotanoy 2011
This shows very fine tannins for the vintage. Polished. Full body with a solid core of fruit and a long, caressing finish. Classy for the vintage. Drink in 2017.
Tasted at JP Moueix. The Trotanoy 2011 has a wonderful bouquet that soars from the glass: crushed raspberry and wild strawberry mixed with crushed stone. It has a crystalline quality that is uncommon in 2011. The palate is beautifully composed with very fine structure, a touch of spice, incredible focus and stunning precision on the finish. It has a tensile quality all of its own. This is a quintessential Trotanoy, though one that is not in the same class as either the previous two vintages. Tasted April 2012.
Rich, dense, masculine and substantial, Trotanoy has produced a bigger wine than most 2011s. Similar to the masculinity and robustness of Gazin, with more mineral content, this medium to full-bodied, muscular effort will benefit from 3-4 years of cellaring and should keep for two decades. Think black cherries, earth, baking spices and serious extract!
