Community Tasting Notes 95

    January 27, 2019 - A lazy Sunday lunch - Bordeaux blind, Raveneau, PYCM, Yquem, Dom Rose and etc. (Eddie V's - Tysons Corner, VA): Fully mature medium expressive nose displaying subtle red fruit, strawberry, dry cherry, truffle, ash, mint and earth. Fully integrated palate, subtle red fruit, silky and fluid, medium acidity, earthy mineral and a medium to long shy red fruit driven finish with truffle at the end. The overall expression is a bit murky. It feels more advanced than the previous bottle. A couple guys like it a lot. The only correct guess for me.

    November 7, 2018 - Second time tasting this wine this year. I had the benefit of spending more time with a glass in this sitting but the reaction was the same--Wow. Plenty of life left, but this is in a good place with air. Layers and layers of aroma and flavor while still maintaining an overall elegant feel. An interesting counterpoint to the 82 La Fleur-Pétrus which was beautiful but didn't have nearly the power of the Trot.

    November 3, 2018 - Finally, a truly great bottle of Trotanoy. I have been cursed with many sub par performances of this wine across multiple vintages, causing me to question the raves from the critics. No more. This bottle was purchased on release, very top shoulder ullage. The advanced color, almost brown at the rim, made me think this might be yet other astringent or tired example. Instead, the bouquet, firm for a few minutes, developed splendidly. Seeming more like a structured wine from the left bank, there was an excellent concentration of black and red fruits and licorice. Lovely silky texture. Acid more than tannin holds it together. It needs to be served quite cool or a varnish element gains the upper hand. At peak.

    November 3, 2018 - Nose: Black Plum, Blackberry, Cedar, Cigar and spice notes. Tougher to read than the older wines, but many layers are there waiting to unfurl. Palate: Slightly stern at the start with inky density and ripe tannin, but began to show layers of blue fruit, cigar, cocoa, spice and even some of the red fruit and toffee notes as the night wore on. Finish: delightful silky and penetrating finish.

    Very 82, and a wine that still needs time. This was decanted from magnum, and continued to improve throughout the 4+ hours we followed it.

    November 3, 2018 - Having recently opened a 750 of this that seemed far down a slippery slope, I was looking forward to getting at one from a larger format and, from magnum, this didn't disappoint a bit. From this format, it seems to be just on the cusp of exploding into a wonderfully mature, complete Pomerol. Though slightly reserved, its qualities are obvious: loads of rich, ripe plum, clay, mineral, cedar, some of the spice of mature Merlot (camphor, all spice, etc). So luscious on the palate; a bit of truffle. Fabulously good. 95 now, ++ in the future.
