NOV 11 Served blind. Ruby, floral and perfumed, coffee below, dark fruits. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, structure feels somewhat unbalanced with itself, ripe finish. With answer in hand, very likely to be an off bottle, but haven’t tasted it before. 89-90

1989 Château Trotanoy
JAN 13 In the neck fill. Ruby with garnet rim. Even after an hour in decanter it's tight. Scented floral overtones. Blueberries, touch of Christmas spices, black tea, come and go in the glass, opens and closes. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, mouthwatering. Tight even after two hours in decanter, a ball with things going on inside. Long but very tight. Falling apart after four hours in decanter. At this bottles peak: 95

1988 Château Trotanoy
MAY 13 Ruby, garnet rim. A bit tight first but opening up quicker than last bottle a few months back. Blueberries, leather, some prunes and a scented and floral nose with air. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, leaner body that became more rounded and elegant after about an hour, but always retain the slight austerity of the vintage. Long. 92

1988 Château Trotanoy
JAN 13 Very earthy and almost dusty first. After two hours in decanter a totally different ballgame. Truffles, blueberries, cedar and leather. Sous bois and anise. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, refreshing and elegant fruit, towards seductive, layered and complex. Long finish. 95

1985 Château Trotanoy
NOV 12 Bright ruby. Very tight and almost green first. After an hour, still tight but flirting, blueberries, chocolate, floral and scented with even more air. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, more body with air, refreshing but also somewhat stalky. One of the youngest 85's I've tasted. 93

1983 Château Trotanoy
FEB 17 Low neck fill. Ruby, brick rim. Blackberries, cherries, scented, anise, leather, tobacco, floral, almost a sandy mineral feel to it (think warm sand on a beach), iron touch, mint. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, still structured, firm, red berries, cherries and blueberries, fruity and long finish. My last bottle out of quite a few bought for next to nothing as everyone believe there is no good stuff in Pomerol in 1983. This one begs to differ and was not even the best out of several. 95

1983 Château Trotanoy

Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, bit tight, lovely balance, nuanced and fresh, youthful, subdued yet intense, amazing length, waves upon waves, gorgeous and long. Served blind, and I, miraculously, nailed vintage and producer. Even if tighter than last bottle. 97

1983 Château Trotanoy
AUG 12 In the neck fill. Soaked cork. Ruby with brick rim, rich tobacco, plums, almost cedary, flirting, and after some great Burgundies, flirting like few. Complex and layered, cigars, perfumed, hyacinths, violets hardwood and anise. Fresh acidity, ripe tannins, biting texture, a bit lean mid-palate first but got richer with air, fuller, after 45 minutes a perfect palate. Balanced, elegant, even if not rich, surprisingly powerful. Fantastic length. 96
