Way too young, difficult to make it past the tannins .. give it another 3 - 4 years.
Wow ! This is a massive wine still very tannic, even after 4 hours of breathing. Difficult to taste past the tannins. I would leave it for another 3 - 5 years
softening up nicely, will drink well in a few years, big mouthful of fruit and tannin at the moment
Still young but very approachable, soft fruits, rounded mouth fulls. Would recommend for easy drinking.
First time I have tried Troplong. It seemed over powering, full of fruit and tannins, a shock wine but difficult to get beyond that. perhaps I drunk it too young.
