(a blend of 95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc; 3.5 pH; IPT 75;13.9% alcohol): Saturated ruby-red. Pure, fresh aromas of blackcurrant, black cherry, mocha and licorice, lifted by a whiff of violet. Dense, sweet and stuffed with fruit, offering liqueur-like flavors of black cherry and mocha; remains very light on its feet thanks to wonderfully vibrant, harmonious acidity. For such a strapping wine, this boasts very good energy and noteworthy precision. Finishes long and ripely tannic, with repeating notes of milk chocolate and violet. Jean-Claude Berrouet considers this to be "an absolutely classic Trotanoy." I couldn't agree more: it ought to prove to be one of the best 15 or 20 wines of a stellar vintage.

Blackish crimson, sweet start. Pretty dramatic rendition of Pomerol but not too painful to taste. Polished. Still lots of dry tannin but it’s not painful or drying or exaggerated – quite fresh in fact.

Complex aromas of sweet black cherries, loamy soil, roasted herbs, coffee, chocolate, and oak dominate the backward, muscular, virile 2005 Trotanoy. Deep ruby/purple to the rim, this broodingly backward, deep Pomerol exhibits admirable intensity, impressive purity, and a long, concentrated finish. Its character is similar to that of the 1998, but with more structure and tannin. I suspect my score will prove to be conservative after a decade of bottle age. Along with Petrus and Lafleur, Trotanoy is the most backward of all the Pomerols.

Shows complex, subtle aromas of fruit and black olive, with hints of milk chocolate and ripe fruit. Develops wonderfully in the glass. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and beautiful sweet berry and light vanilla fruit character. Refined and balanced. This is very, very impressive.

This has a captivating nose of blueberries, spices, and fresh lilacs. On the palate this offers a full body, serious intensity, and great acidity and richness. This is a wonderful wine that shows great contrast and wildness.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
