Grand Cru Classé St.Emilion
The vineyards of this Château dominate the village of St. Emilion. Within the vineyard area of about 10 hectares, there are some pre-phylloxera vines (average age about 140 years). The rare bunches produced, they enter
in the final assembly of this wine that is among the most classic of its appellation.
A parchment of 1453 confirms the existence of viticulture and that the name "Trotte Vieille“ was used for this estate already in the 15th century. The name is derived from the fact that there lived a lady in this chartreuse in the 14th century. This little lady was very interested in what was going on in the town of Bordeaux and used thus to walk down to the close-by crossing where the stagecoaches stopped on their way coming from Bordeaux. As the lady seemingly often hasted to the coaches, the people of Saint-Emilion called her “la trotte vieille”, the “old trot”. This unusual name was used for the chateau already in the 15th century. In honor of the name-giving lady, Trotte Vieille’s second wine is called "La Vieille Dame de Trotte Vieille”.
The fermentation lasts from 15 to 20 days, the aging takes place from 12 to 18 months in entirely new barriques.
The color is intense, the nose reveals spicy notes and ripe fruit, black fruit and a vanilla barely mentioned, really a wine of great class.
