Just pure gold in Pomerol, the 1998 offers a still youthful color as well as a heavenly nose of ripe red, black, and blue fruits intermixed with notes of flowers, truffly earth, and cedarwood. The purity of fruit as well as elegance paired with power is just about off the charts, and it's full-bodied, with perfectly integrated tannins, flawless balance, and a finish that won't quit. One of the finest Pomerols to pass my lips, it's firmly in its prime drink window, but I wouldn't be surprised to see this evolve for another 20 years or more.-Jeb Dunnuck

The 1998 Trotanoy displays a deep garnet-purple color. Wow. Tons of gregarious fruit springs from the glass—crème de cassis, blackberry pie, blueberry compote and mincemeat with suggestions of cigar box, chargrilled meat, incense, earth and dried cherries plus a touch of dried flowers. Medium to full-bodied, it coats the palate with bags of rich, plush textured fruit, offering layer upon layer of exotic spice and savory flavors, finishing epically long and layered. This is mind-blowingly delicious!-Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

(95% merlot and 5% cabernet franc; 3.72 pH; IPT 71; 13.5% alcohol): Bright ruby-red with a hint of garnet at the rim. Knockout deep, nuanced nose of blackcurrant, red cherry, violets and truffle. Supple, broad and full in the mouth, with smoky blackberry, caramel and spicy pepper flavors. The finish is long and silky, with ultrasmooth tannins and a lingering mineral note. This impeccably balanced wine is utterly irresistible already. "An exceptional wine and one of the best examples of Trotanoy ever," according to Jean-Claude Berrouet. I couldn't agree more.-Ian D'Agata, Vinous Media

It was a real pleasure to try Trotanoy at 21 years old. The nose here majors on cloves and black pepper spices, and you can feel the richness of a vintage that was perfectly suited to the early-ripening soils of Pomerol (which means it was pretty perfect weather until October 1, when it began to rain and didn't let up - something that caused issues for Cabernet Sauvignon but less so for Merlot over in this corner of the region). The tannins and black fruits are still going strong although this is definitely showing some evolution. The acidity is fairly present, as are black truffle and olive notes, alongside some more gentle crushed autumn leaves. As it opens in the glass the wine starts to feel elastic, with its muscles stretching out, but it still needs a good few hours decanting if you’e looking to open this soon.-Jane Anson, Decanter
