Description

The aromatic expression and precision of a Saint-Emilion Grand Cru wine

The estate

The origin of the name "Trottevieille" dates back several hundred years. Legend has it that there was once a stagecoach stop near the château. As soon as a team stopped, an elderly lady trotted down to get the news, hence the name “Trotte Vieille” (meaning “the Trot of the Elderly”). This Premier Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Émilion, Château Trotte Vieille, is home to a small parcel of vines rescued from the terrible damage caused by phylloxera during the second half of the 19th century.

The vineyard

Château Trotte Vieille 2016 is a Saint-Emilion wine that stems from a 10-hectare vineyard. The vines are around 50 years old and are planted on reddish soil upon a limestone subsoil.

The vintage

The 2016 vintage was marked by rather complex climatic conditions. The winter was mild and rainy. It was followed by a cold and equally wet spring. However, the flowering went perfectly well thanks to an episode of pleasant weather. The summer that followed was very hot and dry, causing severe water stress. Fortunately, the vineyard was hit by some long-awaited rainfall on September 13th, which enabled the grapes to complete their ripening process.

Vinification and ageing

Aged in new barrels for an average of 12 to 18 months.

The blend

Cabernet Franc (53%)

Merlot (45%)

Cabernet Sauvignon (2%).

Château Trotte Vieille 2016: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Nose

The nose blends intense floral aromas with savoury empyreumatic notes.

Palate

On the palate, the tannins are very fine and the acidity is well balanced. The fruity flavours blend extremely well with the oak influence. The 2016 Château Trottevieille is deep and precise until the finish.
