"A meaty wine with the body and structure to make it a legend. Ripe, herbal and earthy on the nose, a mouthful of fruit and a classy structure. It is beginning to close up and may take until 2000 to open. Be patient.--Trotanoy vertical. -JS" (WS)

""Lastly, the fully mature 1982 Trotanoy started with wonderful, sweet berry fruit, dusty loamy soil undertones, a hint of truffle and blackcurrants. Round, juicy, full-bodied and opulent, this wine is not likely to get much better, although it is certainly capable of holding at this stage for another ten or more years in a cold cellar." - Robert Parker, 100 Points Wine Advocate Hedonist's Gazette #955 " (WA)

"(90% merlot and 10% cabernet franc; 12.7% alcohol): Rather evolved brick-red color. Open-knit, expressive aromas of red cherry, strawberry jam, sweet herbs, faded flowers and leather. Large-scaled and creamy on entry, with a low-acid mouthfeel, but not quite unctuous or heavy, displaying a restrained sweetness to its explosive red and dark fruit and faded violet flavors. Finishes big and smoothly tannic, with a lingering spiciness. The color notwithstanding, this wine still has some positive evolution ahead of it." (VM)

"What a classic Pomerol with brown sugar, chocolate and black olive aromas as well as ripe fruits. It’s full-bodied with super velvety tannins and a luscious and delicious finish. Drink now." (JS)
