    October 18, 2019 - Lush and seductive. Interesting dusty note at the back end.

    August 25, 2019 - Dark and a little dusty. Good depth but slightly less energy than the best bottles.

    July 29, 2019 - At full maturity, and not quite as flamboyant as the previous bottle tasted last year, still, this is stellar juice! The nose of roses, oyster shell, cigar wrapper, truffle, fudge and dark plums kept you busy. Full-bodied, lush, round and fresh the vibrancy in the cherry and juicy plums hit all the right spots. As the wine approaches 50 years of age, there is no reason to cellar this for more improvement. No decanting was needed.

    June 15, 2019 - After 2 hours decantation, this dark red claret had a very forward nose with hints of chocolate and dark berries. The body was full with notes of dark fruit, chocolate, and leather. The finish was long and delightful. I purchased this wine around 1976 for $11.95 at Hi-Time wines in Costa Mesa, CA. Ch. Trotanoy never disappoints.

    February 21, 2019 - Alas, a tight, inexpressive bottle. Quiet nose - plum, game, leather. Rustic tannin. Never really came around.
