Lot #179. Trotanoy 1961

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Region: France, Bordeaux, Pomerol.
Score: 98 RP.
"Tasted 7 times with consistent notes. The 1961, which I have consistently rated between 96 and 100, is unquestionably the greatest Trotanoy in the post-World War II era. The wine's saturated, thick, inky, plummy color reveals slight amber at the edge. The magnificent bouquet of jammy black-raspberries, smoke, cloves, tar, and caramel is a knock-out. With dense, unctuous, thick, sweet, rich flavors loaded with glycerin and extract, this massive, full-bodied, stunningly rich, fully mature wine is capable of lasting . . ." Wine Advocate #95, Oct 1994
Provenance: The Dominion Cellar
Notes: 1 very top shoulder, 1 top shoulder, lightly stained, very lightly scuffed, and very lightly bin soiled labels.
