    Chateau Trotanoy 1990
    3scl, 1wasl, 3wrl, owc
    Bottle (12)

    "Sleeping giant. Dark red color with a brick edge. Subtle aromas of mineral, berry and mint. Full-bodied and very closed, yet chewy and big. Grows and grows on the palate. Huge." (95 pts. JS, Wine Spectator, Aug. 2000)

    "Here it has a gorgeous bouquet with blackberries, mulberry truffle and clove, demonstrating commendable vigor given its age. The palate is medium-bodied with a fine line of acidity, but quite firm in structure, robed in velvety tannins that gently grip the mouth. There is very fine density here, building towards a muscular finish that displays the style of Trotanoy with much more confidence than the 1989, which seems almost meek by comparison. It is now beginning to reach its peak so there is no need to cellar for longer, yet I can see this drinking well for another 15-20 years." (94 pts. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate #231, June 2017)
