Domain: Château Trotanoy

The vineyard was created in the mid-17th century by the Fontemoing family, Libourne wine merchants who owned several other properties, including Château Canon. They were followed by the Giraud family, and at the end of the 17th century the wine was known as Pomerol-Giraud Cru de Trotanoy. The name Trotanoy comes from a characteristic of its exceptional terroir: a mixture of clay-gravel and clay soil. In dry, hot periods, the high proportion of clay would cause the soil to become rock-hard and difficult to work, earning it the name trop ennuy (too much trouble). In the 19th century, the domaine covered 25 hectares, but sales, splits and and inheritances reduced it to half this size by the late 1920s. After the war, Trotanoy was sold to the Pecresse family and then to Jean-Pierre Moueix in 1953.
