Description

A delicate and well-balanced Saint-Émilion Premier Grand Cru Classé

The estate

The origin of the name "Trottevieille" dates back several hundred years. Legend has it that there was once a stagecoach stop near the château. As soon as a team stopped, an elderly lady trotted down to get the news, hence the name “Trotte Vieille” (meaning “the Trot of the Elderly”). This Premier Grand Cru Classe of Saint-Émilion, Château Trotte Vieille, is home to a small parcel of vines rescued from the terrible damage caused by phylloxera during the second half of the 19th century.

The vineyard

Superbly situated on the top of the Saint-Emilion plateau and extending over 10 hectares in a single block, the south-west facing vineyard of Château Trotte Vieille has a terroir of reddish soil on limestone rock.

The blend

Château Trotte Vieille 2011 comprises a blend of Merlot (50%), Cabernet Franc (48%), and Cabernet Sauvignon (2%).
