The origin of the name "Trottevieille" dates back several hundred years. Legend has it that there was once a stagecoach stop near the chateau. 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-Emilion, Chateau 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.

Chateau Trotte Vieille 2021: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting


Brilliant, with a beautiful garnet color.


The nose combines fruity (cherry, raspberry) and floral fragrances.


A suave attack precedes a silky mouth which offers an alluring freshness, aromatic richness along with very fine tannins. The finish is persistent and reveals a salinity typical of its terroir of origin.
