Tasting Notes

"The 2018 TrotteVieille is a super-intriguing wine. Aromatically deep and layered, the 2018 offers tremendous depth and textural finesse. Mocha, grilled herbs, black cherry, new leather and spice all wrap around the palate in a dense, racy Saint-Émilion. The blend is 54% Cabernet Franc, 44% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Sauvignon." - Antonio Galloni, vinous.com, (April, 2019), Ratings: 93-96

"There's a floral edge to the nose here that is clear from the start - the old Cabernet Franc vines and the limestone have served Trotte Vieille well in 2018. It has good juiciness, full of such beautiful signatures of the property, from its mineral, slatey character that scales the walls, to its creamy texture and brambly and raspberry jelly fruit, all finished off with a saline kick on the finish. Great stuff. 38hl/ha yield. 100% new oak" - Jane Anson, Decanter (4/1/2019), Ratings: 95

"A light touch has come into this typically serious wine. The bright acidity and forward black currant fruits lift the tannins and spice. It has delicious freshness and concentration that will allow the wine to develop well." - Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast (4/17/2019), Ratings: 95-97

"Nez de caramel au lait et de cerise noire très caractéristique du cru, avec une pointe poivrée très salivante. La bouche marquée par ses 54% de cabernet franc et 2% de cabernet-sauvignon est l’une des plus stylées de Saint-Emilion, par son élégance et sa très grande fraîcheur. Après la mise en bouteille, il pourrait bien intégrer le top cinq de Saint-Emilion." - BETTANE & DESSEAUVE (5/3/2019), Ratings: 96-97
