Country of Origin: Bordeaux, France
Variety: 85% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc
Taste: One of the very best estates in Pomerol, this is a wine that ages exceptionally well, and the 2000 vintage is considered to be one of the very best. Trotanoy is a naturally profound, complex, richly-concentrated wine with outstanding aging potential. The wine possesses a deep color and a dense, powerful nose, repeated on the palate with the addition of creamy, dark chocolate notes, and a singular concentration of flavor owed to its very old vines.
Food Match: Best paired with all types of classic meat dishes, veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised and grilled dishes. Chateau Trotanoy is also good when matched with Asian dishes, hearty fish courses like tuna, mushrooms and pasta.
