A fabulous success for Trotanoy, this wine has considerable potential, and may ultimately merit a higher score than I have bestowed upon it. The 1995 boasts a saturated deep purple color, followed by a knock-out nose of black truffles, cherries, raspberries, and kirsch fruit intermixed with spicy oak and beef blood-like scents. Full-bodied, dense, and as powerful and backward as its rival, Lafleur, this broad-shouldered, super-extracted Trotanoy is superb, but don't make the mistake of thinking it will provide easy-going drinking over the near-term. While splendid, this wine possesses extremely high tannin, and needs at least 7-8 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025. Bravo!After continuously expressing my disappointment with the wines produced at Trotanoy between 1983 and 1989, I am thrilled with what has been taking place since the 1990 vintage. The 1995 and 1996 vintages are both impressive, with the 1995 unquestionably the finest Trotanoy since the extraordinary 1982.Robert Parker, Wine Advocate # 115

Dried flowers, with chocolate and hints of fruit. Quickly opens and gives you more on the nose if you look for it. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Builds on your palate. Still needs time. Racy and refined. Fantastic.--'95/'96 Bordeaux retrospective. Best after 2008. – James Suckling , Wine Spectator 2007
