The 2015 Trotanoy is one of the most exciting wines of the vintage. Inky, powerful and ample, the 2015 is all about raw energy. A host of dark cherry, plum, smoke, gravel and mineral nuances take shape in the glass. Don't expect the 2015 to be ready anytime soon. The tannins are going to need time to settle down. Still, the wine's pure power is remarkable. Trotanoy is 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Trotanoy is a blend of 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. It has a fragrant bouquet, unusually understated and introverted for Trotanoy, with tightly wound, gravel-scented black fruit, touches of dried orange peel and truffle in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, tensile tannin. Again, this feels compact, dense, a coiled spring perhaps, but there is plenty of energy here. Perhaps in the long-term, the Hosanna and the La Fleur Petrus might be the picks from JP Moueix in this great Pomerol vintage, but Trotanoy always springs a surprise once in bottle. Trotanoy - an enigma eternal, but we would not want it any other way. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2022-2045

The depth of fruit and length to this is spectacular with blackberry, wet earth, dark bitter chocolate and blueberry character. It’s full and powerful and absolutely seamless. Perhaps the greatest wine ever made here. 93% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

Packed from the get-go, with tightly coiled dark fig, blackberry and black currant paste notes, while singed alder and juniper accents form the frame. Roasted tobacco and dark earth elements takes over on the brick house finish. A very strong showing. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

A Jean-Pierre Moueix wine. 93% Merlot, 7% Cabernet Franc. Clayey gravel and black clay on an iron pan. Notably dark crimson. Very savoury, with marked acidity and freshness. Yet it is more concentrated than any other J-P Moueix wine. A slow burner but should be exciting eventually. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2025-2040

True to character. Subtle and reserved on the nose but exudes depth and power. Dark fruit and mineral complexity apparent. Beautifully structured palate combining the richness of fruit, abundant, ripe tannins and freshness. Overall great harmony and staying power.

The aroma of this wine is so enticing that you want to dab some behind your ears. Floral, leafy and very pure, with deftly interwoven oak, succulent tannins, balancing acidity and lots of dark plum and bramble fruit. Fresh, yet extremely well structured.
