Château Trottevieille 2005 Red (Saint-Émilion)
This sleeping beauty of a chateau is showing signs of awakening. With its great terroir, it deserves to make wine like this 2005, dense, perfumed, very ripe, powered with sweet, purple fruit and juicy flavors. It will develop relatively quickly, but then should age over many years.
Château Trottevieille 2006 Red (Saint-Émilion)
This wine appears to mark a departure from Trottevieille’s normally strict style, showing more opulence, new wood and ripeness. There is still a touch of austerity initially, but from that point, the wine opens out with a great burst of fresh blackberry jelly and stylish texture.
