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.

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)

Wine Advocate (89)

Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Trottevieille has a pleasing leathery, undergrowth-scented bouquet that feels fully mature, although there is commendable vigor here (more so than the 2007 Canon). The palate is medium-bodied with crisp and tensile tannin, a keen thread of acidity and moderate depth but impressive focus towards the finish. It is fully mature with those ferrous and bell pepper notes on the finish, but I can see this offering another decade's worth of drinking pleasure, no problem. One to look out for. Tasted February 2017.

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

Trotte Vieille 2014 (12x75cl)

Wine Advocate (92)

The 2014 Trottevieille has a fragrant bouquet, quite understated at first and building with brambly red berry fruit, undergrowth and faint cedar-like aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, fine acidity and a gentle, caressing finish that is silky smooth. This is a very refined Trottevieille, one that is far less rustic than in the past, the persistence on the finish suggesting that it should age in consummate style. This is a classy offering from the Castèja family.
