Chateau Trottevieille "1st Grand Cru Classe B" 2011
Tasting note: Nicely rendered, with singed sandalwood and dark tea notes running along the edges, while flavors of plum sauce and red currant preserves fill out the core. Lightly briary tannins and a hint of cedar lend a lightly firm edge, but this stays fine-grained overall. Best from 2015 through 2021. 2,000 cases made.
