Château Trotanoy Pomerol 1998
Wine SpectatorSubtle and harmonious young red with berry, tobacco and vanilla character. Full-bodied, with masses of extremely polished, fine tannins that build on the palate. Finishes long, with milk chocolate and berry. Best after 2008.
Wine AdvocateThis structured, formidably-endowed, deep ruby/purple-colored, full-bodied, super-rich wine exhibits notes of toffee, truffles, and abundant blackberry, cherry, and currant fruit. It cuts a large swath across the palate, and possesses copious but sweet tannin as well as a chewy, muscular mid-palate and finish. This is a compelling effort from one of the great vineyards of Pomerol. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2030.
