Château Trotte Vieille Premier Grand Cru Classé is a superbly situated vineyard, near the walls and moat of Saint-Emilion; a warm site, which suffered no frost damage in 2021. The winery has recently been up-graded, allowing more focussed individual vinifications, plot by plot. The investments of its owners – the Castéja family, who also own Château Batailley – have been paying off, as this 2021 is one of the greatest success stories of the vintage. 55% Cabernet Franc, with 44% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Sauvignon, colour is deep purple. It has strikingly complex, chocolatey aromas and a beautiful, fleshy texture. Fresh all the way to the finish, it has elegance, harmony and impressive fruit intensity (for drinking 2026-2042+).
