CLOS TRIMOULETLocated to the north of Saint-Emilion, "Clos Trimoulet" is a family estate on which the ancestral skills have been handed down over five generations now. Guy Appollot and his two sons, Alain et Joël, have managed to preseve this heritage, whilst combining it with the most modern of techniques. The estate is divided into several plots of vines with clay and sandy soils which give the wine structure, longevity and finesse. The grapes are picked when they are perfectly ripe and undergo a long vatting process which extracts as many tannins as possible. The result is that "Clos Trimoulet" is an excellent wine for laying down. All the production is bottled on the estate after 18 months of maturing in oak barrels. The Domaine is HVE level 3 certified.
It is always a real pleasure to open their Saint-Emilion GC 2016, a beautiful ruby color, which presents aromas of truffle, red fruit macerated. On the palate, the attack is frank, supple, tasty, of a beautiful amplitude, perfectly balanced. The 2015, Gold Medal, very fragrant (humus, ripe cherry), combining color and material, very good mouth, connotations of blackcurrant and black pepper, of a nice finish finely spicy, it is a wine of excellent evolution.
The 2014 Gold Medal, with a delicate nose, combining power and finesse, a beautiful deep purple colour, shades of violet and truffle, a great harmony, severe, generous to the taste buds. The 2013, Bordeaux Silver Medal, is tasted perfectly, deep ruby colour, generous, a wine persistent on the nose as in the mouth, all finesse, fine tannins, connotations of ripe blackcurrant and truffle in the final.
The 2012 Bordeaux Gold Medal, colorful and very fragrant, with a nice concentration in the mouth, has notes of red fruits and liquorice, a well fleshy wine, with silky tannins but very rich. The 2011, also Gold Medal Bordeaux, is excellent, fragrant (humus, cherry, blackberry), all in mouth, with ample tannins, complex nose (violet, strawberry of the woods), is very warm. Superb 2010 (silver medal), a wine of a very beautiful concentration, very elegant and a beautiful finesse, with aromas of very ripe fruits (black fruits), it is really balance and finesse that dominate.
