James Suckling 99-100
A very concentrated Trot with density and depth, the tannins spreading across the palate. Full and very intense. It goes on for minutes. Great depth. Another soulful wine from the Moueix family.
The 2020 Trotanoy blew me away when I tasted the sample over several hours in the UK. Was it a potential perfect wine? The mere presence of doubt meant that I did not feel mandated to award a perfect score, by a cat’s whisker. Re-examining the Trotanoy at the offices of J-P Moueix, I feel this gives me the mandate to up my potential score. It is simply an astonishing Pomerol that takes all your senses by their lapels and demands attention. There is a beguiling symmetry that no other 2020 possesses, a precision that astounds. Let’s see what this boy can do in bottle then.
Anticipated maturity: 2030-2070
