    Estimate

    Château Trotanoy 1998
    Pomerol
    In second-hand case. Badly bin-soiled and some slightly damaged labels. Levels: base of neck or better
    Tasting note: This structured, formidably-endowed, deep ruby/purple-coloured, full-bodied, super-rich wine exhibits notes of toffee, truffles, and abundant blackberry, cherry, and currant fruit. It cuts a large swath across the palate, and possesses copious but sweet tannin as well as a chewy, muscular mid-palate and finish. This is a compelling effort from one of the great vineyards of Pomerol. Anticipated maturity: 2006-2030. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 134, April 2001
    12 bottles per lot
