Ch. Trotanoy (0.75 L)
NM: Tasted blind at Bordeaux Indexí»s 10-Year On horizontal. This has a very earthy bouquet with touches of rusty nail and undergrowth, but well defined if lacking a little vigour. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannins on the entry, some leafy Cabernet Franc here. Good acidity, masculine with a slightly foursquare finish but fine length and dimension. This has more to give and indeed, returning after two hours this has retained such vigour and sinew…but ití»s a bit of a beast at the moment. Tasted March 2011.
