90 Points Robert Parker
As a longtime fan of this property, I have been candid about my disappointment with most vintages of Trotanoy between 1983 and 1989. Certainly the 1990 appeared to be a return to the big, burly, concentrated style of Trotanoy produced in the forties, fifties, sixties, and early seventies. I am now convinced this property is on the rebound, as a result of sensational efforts in 1993, 1994, and the 1995, the latter wine the greatest Trotanoy since the 1970 and 1982. This is a wine to check out in the generally ignored 1993 vintage. Trotanoy's offering exhibits a saturated purple color, as well as a sweet, ripe nose of black-cherries, licorice, and earth. Top-class flavors, an opulent texture, medium to full body, moderate tannin, and an inner-core of sweet, jammy, concentrated fruit make this a terrific effort for the 1993 vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2018. A sleeper!
