    Château Trotte Vieille

    About Château Trotte Vieille

    Historical records indicate that Château Trotte Vieille could have been producing wines as early as 1435, making the estate one of the oldest properties in St-Émilion. Reportedly named after an old lady whom residents of St-Émilion referred to as an “old trot”, Château Trotte Vieille was gifted by Marcel Borie in 1949 to his son-in-law, Emile Castéja, whose family also owned Château Lynch-Moussas, Château Batailley and Château du Domaine-de-LEglise. The 33-hectare vineyard of Château Trotte Vieille consists of a single block of vines located not far from Château Troplong  Mondot and Château Pavie Macquin. Vines are old, averaging close to 50 years, with some pre-phylloxera vines over 140 years old! The estate produces about 30,000 bottles of its first wine every year, which is a blend of 55% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. There is also a second wine, the “La Vieille Dame de Trotte Vieille”.

    Trotte Vieille 2003 (12x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (90)

    Performing better than I remember en premieur, the still vigorous, intact 2003 Trottevieille exhibits a dark plum/garnet color in addition to notes of cedarwood, spice box, red and black currants, licorice and graphite. Deep, fresh and well-delineated, it should drink nicely for 5-8 years.

    Trotte Vieille 2005 (12x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (93)

    Owned by the Castéja family, Trottevieille has one parcel of some of the oldest vines in St.-Emilion. Dense purple, the 2005 is better at age 10 then earlier. The wine has beautiful blueberry, plum and blackcurrant fruit, an attractive underlying minerality, medium to full body, sweet tannin, and a long, layered, complex finish. Drink it over the next 15-20 years.

    Trotte Vieille 2007 (12x75cl)

    Vinous - Stephen Tanzer (87-90)

    Good medium ruby. Cool, pure aromas of black cherry, bitter chocolate and minerals. Supple and sweet, with mineral and licorice flavors complicated by an exotic suggestion of white fruit. In a fairly round but juicy style, with modest real thrust but good breadth. Finishes with reasonably ripe tannins and good verve. Nicely made.

    92-94 Barrel sample. A serious, but elegant wine. It has structure, but that is put in second place to the fresh black plum and dried fig fruits. Lively acidity to give the wine an extra freshness
