Château Trotanoy 2013 CBO(6x75cl) 92/100 WA
Un Château Trotanoy 2013 fruité, parfumé, tendre, finement tramé, savoureux et gracieux à défaut d’être puissant. Longueur moyenne. Agréable.JMQ.www.quarin.com
The 2013 Trotanoy appears to be maturing nicely in bottle. What I appreciate is the precision on the nose. No, it is not as complex or as intense as other vintages, yet there is admirable detail here, crushed stone mixed with redcurrant and blackberry. The palate is medium-bodied and clearly has commendable depth as it gently grips the mouth. There is substance here, more body if less roundness vis-a-vis the 2013 La Fleur Petrus with a slight edginess towards the finish and a hint of black truffle and smoke on the aftertaste. This should be considered as a success for the vintage and I can see it giving a couple of decades of drinking pleasure.Neal Martin
