Tasting Notes Trotanoy 2012

96-98

The blockbuster 2012 Trotanoy has more in common with the 2009 or 2010 than most 2012s do. It stands as an example of just how successful Pomerol was in 2012. A dense black/purple color is followed by a bouquet of minerals/crushed rocks, powerful, intense black currant, licorice, roasted meat, barbecue and truffle notes. Full-bodied and super-concentrated, it is an amazing tour de force in this irregular as well as challenging vintage. Trotanoy's 2012 should be on every connoisseur's buying list. It will require 5-8 years of cellaring when released, and should keep for 25-30 years, one of the longest-lived wines of the vintage.

Wow. This really builds on the palate. Starts off slowly but then gets more silky by the second. Full and juicy. Dark chocolate and nuts. Plenty of subtle fruit.

The Trotanoy 2012 was left to one side for several minutes to open up. It has immense purity on the nose with notes of dark cherries, boysenberry, dried orange peel and a touch of forest floor. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins. Edouard Moueix wondered whether to place La Fleur-Petrus after Trotanoy this year and I think he has a valid point: the Trotanoy does not quite possess the length of La Fleur Petrus. But it is very focused...a 'wired' Pomerol full of tension and unpredictability. Tasted April 2013.
