750 ML France, Bordeaux, Libournais, Pomerol

|Robert M. Parker, Jr.||94||Drink: 2009- 2014|
The fully mature 1982 is the finest Trotanoy produced after the 1961 and 1970, and before the 1998 and 2008. There is considerable garnet at the edge, but plenty of sweet kirsch, herb, truffle, and earthy notes emerge from the wine’s complex, explosive aromatics, as well as beautiful glycerin and sweetness. It has been at its peak of maturity for at least five years, and should be drunk over the next 4-5 years.
