The Merlot-dominant wine is known for its decadent, rich style, and its prices are among the highest in Bordeaux. In the 18th Century, the estate was known as Trop Ennuie, or \"Too Annoying\", due to the poor, hard-to-work nature of the soils here. These are made up of clay with deposits of gravel and iron, and are now considered as very good soils for viticulture. Château Trotanoy is located on the western side of the Pomerol plateau, not far from Pétrus and Lafleur, and covers 7 hectares (18 acres). Around 90 percent of this is planted to Merlot, with Cabernet Franc accounting for the remainder. Trotanoy was one of the few estates that was not destroyed in the frosts of 1956, and therefore has some of the oldest vines in the region. Fruit arriving at the vineyard passes through two laser-equipped optical sorting tables. The grand vin is fermented in small concrete vats and matured in oak – half of which is new – for around 18 months. A second wine, L'Esperance de Trotanoy, made its debut in 2009, but does not appear every year. Château Trotanoy has been a part of négociant JP Moueix since 1953, alongside Pétrus.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-02-13T12:55:42-05:00","created_at":"2023-02-03T13:56:02-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","NK0302","Other_Wine","Producer_Château Trotanoy","Region_Bordeaux","Source_Hedonism0123","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Bordeaux Blend Red"],"price":899999,"price_min":899999,"price_max":899999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42761474080906,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2018 | Château Trotanoy | Pomerol 6L","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":899999,"weight":97976,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/53_bb24887a-c4d2-414a-8bb1-0f0b96b4b45f.jpg?v=1675450589"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/53_bb24887a-c4d2-414a-8bb1-0f0b96b4b45f.jpg?v=1675450589","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"2018 | Château Trotanoy | Pomerol 6L at CaskCartel.com","id":24146284511370,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"width":600,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/53_bb24887a-c4d2-414a-8bb1-0f0b96b4b45f.jpg?v=1675450589"},"aspect_ratio":0.6,"height":1000,"media_type":"image","src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0050\/2395\/7103\/products\/53_bb24887a-c4d2-414a-8bb1-0f0b96b4b45f.jpg?v=1675450589","width":600}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 2018 | Château Trotanoy | Pomerol 6L\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMedium to deep garnet-purple in color, it slowly unfurls to reveal a jaw-dropping perfume of Black Forest cake, black raspberries, blackberry pie and kirsch, followed by hints of cast-iron pan, violets, woodsmoke, Chinese five spice and eucalyptus, with a waft of tree bark.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eOrder from the Largest \u0026amp; Most Trusted Premium Spirits Marketplace! \u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFeatured in\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eROLLING STONE\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eMEN'S JOURNAL\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003cli\u003eUS WEEKLY\u003c\/li\u003e\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eNOTICE:\u003c\/strong\u003e Many other small liquor store sites may end up cancelling your order due to the high demand, unavailability or inaccurate inventory counts.  We have partnerships consisting of a large network of licensed retailers from within the United States, Europe and across the world ensuring orders are fulfilled.   \u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eProducer:\u003c\/b\u003e Château Trotanoy\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eRatings: \u003cspan style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eJD\u003c\/span\u003e | 100  \u003cspan color=\"#ff2a00\" style=\"color: #ff2a00;\"\u003eJS\u003c\/span\u003e | 100\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eVintage\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e:\u003c\/strong\u003e 2018\u003cb\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003c\/b\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eSize:\u003c\/b\u003e 6L\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eABV:\u003c\/strong\u003e 15%\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eVarietal:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e Bordeaux Blend Red\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eCountry\/Region:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cspan\u003e France, Bordeaux\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cul\u003e\u003c\/ul\u003e\n\u003c!-- split --\u003e\n\u003ch4\u003eDetailed Description\u003c\/h4\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eMedium to deep garnet-purple in color, it slowly unfurls to reveal a jaw-dropping perfume of Black Forest cake, black raspberries, blackberry pie and kirsch, followed by hints of cast-iron pan, violets, woodsmoke, Chinese five spice and eucalyptus, with a waft of tree bark.
