The 2008 Trotanoy is a ferociously backward Pomerol that did not engage at Farr’s horizontal. Another bottle served over lunch that had undergone a long decanting was far more representative. It has a gorgeous bouquet with raspberry and menthol, a little dark chocolate and cedar. The palate is medium-bodied with ample freshness and vigor although it clearly demands a long aeration to really click into fifth gear. This is a multi-dimensional Trotanoy that probably needs another couple of years in bottle. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 10-Year On tasting. (Neal Martin, Vinous, May 2018)

From magnum. Had this from 750 a few years ago and wasn’t impressed. This is my second time in the last 6 months to have this from magnum and I’ve been blown away both times. Drinking perfectly and just a sexy Pomerol

Mature with lovely red currant, cherry, graphite , chocolate, wet animal fur , olive . Ripe but balanced with some dusty tannins that linger on the finish.

Some nice earthy aromas, but the palate was stale smoked Gouda, and it fell apart with air.

Muscular, firm, deep berry coulis, smoke, truffle. Young but opening with 4+hour decant. This will be a fantastic wine in another 10+ years. Kuruoshi Beef/Ch. Trotanoy Dinner @Pignetti's Restaurant, Temple, TX
