Intense, freshly fruity nose, sweet and complex; elegant middleweight balance, fresh in acidity, quite firm but fine in tannin; moderately dense, fresh, ripe, spicy, long, and complex across the palate, and sweetly fragrant to finish. A firm, middleweight Trotanoy; not the density or proportions of a really fine vintage, but the characteristic sinew is there... in a lighter vein. Will still need a good 10 years. 2022-30+.
Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve
Noble nose, elegant fruit, finely spiced, bright, indulging finish, wonderfully elegant tannin and body. Stands out from many growths of similar stature
