The 2015 Trottevieille is blend of 49% Merlot, 49% Cabernet Franc and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon picked between 28 September and 9 October matured in 100% new oak. It has a very intense bouquet, tightly wound with red and black fruit, hints of truffle coming through with aeration and then it appears to calm down and achieve a wonderful level of definition. The palate is medium-bodied with superb clarity. It feels supple in the mouth, extremely pure and soaking up the new oak with ease. It has a lively orange sorbet and red fruit-driven finish that is silky smooth in texture, thanks to the fineness of the tannin. Cellar this for 5-8 years minimum and then revel in this ascendant Saint Emilion for the next three or four decades. Apr 2016, www.eRobertParker.com, Drink: 2022-2050

This is phenomenal. Greatest wine from here. Such class and power. It starts off slowly and then goes on for minutes. Full body. Yet racy. The new 1961Trotte. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

The freshness and bright profile stand out, with red currant, pomegranate and blood orange notes that are atypical for the vintage. Pretty savory and floral details fill in and the finish has a fine chalky spine. Shows very little extraction. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

49% Cabernet Franc, 49% Merlot. Quite rich and sweet. Still a bit edgy. Lacks real intensity but it certainly isn’t overdone. Sinewy rather than flattering. Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2025-2037

49% each Merlot and Cabernet Franc with 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. Aromatically fresh and fragrant. Pure and concentrated with a depth of dark, brambly fruit. Tannic power but the tannins are round and defined. Impressive length and freshness. 100% new oak is completely absorbed. Harmonious; one of the best ever from this estate. Apr 2016, James Lawther MW, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2023-2045

At the riper end of the spectrum, it must be said (the Merlots came in at 15%, apparently) but the high percentage of Cabernet Franc gives the wine balanced, freshness and zip. Leafy, complex and built to last, this is a very impressive Trottevielle. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2022-2035
