    August 7, 2019 - Massively disappointing after one previously excellent bottle from the same lot. This had very little nose and its only redeeming feature was the ripe cherry, red spice, cedary, pencil palate. I wondered if this could have been so subtly corked as to simply strip the nose without showing TCA taint, but no one else thought so. An unfortunate case of dramatic bottle variation.

    So, 3 bottles in total consumed from the same (reliable) source and all in great shape - one very good and two pretty poor. Caveat emptor.

    May 25, 2019 - In 3L format. Soft and expressive. Probably over the peak in 750 format. Liked it.

    May 24, 2019 - 1989 Bordeaux Dinner (Joseph's Place, Wong Chung Hang, Hong Kong): Very mild bricking on the meniscus...translucent. ruby colour. Nose is flowery perfumed red roses. Palate is wow... fresh acidity, quite high, and powerful tannic structure. Immediately heady and resonant with super length. A step up from the 1989....but needs 5 more years to fully unfurl. 92+

    March 16, 2019 - Nice mature Bordeaux. This has good secondary development and the merlot character shines through with dark plum and blueberry flavors. The depth and length were not quite as good as in other older vintages of Trotanoy I've tasted.
