Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted at Bordeaux Index's annual 10-Year On tasting in London and then at the château. The 2006 Château Trottevieille has an elegant bouquet, abraded by time with melted tar and truffle infusing the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple ripe tannin, a little chewy and not as refined as the 2006 Canon; but there is a pleasant spicy touch on the smudged mulberry and tobacco finish that shows decent weight, if not the finessed sophistication that recent vintages have demonstrated (such as the 2012 tasted just the previous week). Tasted April 2016.
