Chateau Trotanoy
Chateau Trotanoy can produce some of the finest wines in the Pomerol appellation. They age well and display complexities, opulent personalities and silky textures seldom found in almost any Bordeaux wine. The wines offer a unique, sensuous profile with a beautiful purity of fruit. Most recently, 1998, 2000, 2005, 2008 and 2009 proved how magnificent this wine is.
This 7.6 hectare Pomerol vineyard of Trotanoy is planted to 90% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc on rich, clay and gravel soils with important, deposits of iron. The best terroir of Chateau Trotanoy is situated on the Pomerol plateau. Other portions of their vineyards are located on the slopes. The age of the vines range from an average of 25 years, due to young plantings. But Chateau Trotanoy also has old vines, some are close to 60 years of age. The Pomerol vineyard is planted to a vine density of 6,200 vines per hectare.
