    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.

    December 12, 2018 - Drinking incredibly well tonight. Opened and decanted and drank over the course of prob 4 or 5 hours. This is still on the younger side, but it's showing that depth of character that seems to come with some more years in a wine. Lots of dark red current. Some spice. Everything well integrated. Many years to go, but very lovely now too with the decant.

    November 3, 2018 - Fun wine, the 90 - raspberry, clay focused nose with lots of mature Merlot spices (camphor, etc), mineral, ganache, and a little cedar. Nice richness, both on the nose and palate. Funny to recognize only the day after that I thought this bore some kinship with the 1971. I'd like to follow a bottle of this over the course of an evening; this had about an hour and a half of air prior to tasting. Fully mature.

    November 3, 2018 - Nose: Jubilant raspberry, red cherry fruit, cocoa powder, spice and sandalwood notes. Sweet fragrance to this one, and much lighter in profile than the 98 along side. Palate: More middle weighted, but complete. Silky with modest levels of glycerin and bright blackberry, raspberry, spice and coffee notes. Finish: Moderate with dryer tannin than the 98.

    Really nice and likely drinking close to peak. Seems to lack the stuffing of other vintages, but in a great place right now.

    February 10, 2018 - Now were talking !!!! Marvelous bordeaux with smooth cassis , silky tannins and great backbone. Needed a lot of air. After 4 h of decanting it sang like a diva. Fresh and a bunch of herbal fireworks leave you with a smile. Thats bordeaux in its most hedonistic way. This has years left. Oh happy day !!!!!!
