Peter Maude Fine Wines
2017, Château Esperance de Trotanoy, POMEROL
Bordeaux Blend: Merlot, Cabernet Franc.
Smoked rosemary oak on the nose, this is attractive and appealing with a concentrated but supple fruit expression of sweet raspberry flesh. It has Pomerol typicity, fresh acidities and lift through the finish that holds on. Less tannic than a typical Trotanoy vintage but it has complexity and interest. Well handled. 95/100 Jane Anson, Decanter.
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2035.
