Château Trimoulet

2020 Château Trimoulet  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 91

Soft, fresh and polished, the wine is medium-bodied, forward and packed with ripe, dark plums, cherries, espresso and spice on the palate and in the finish. Give it 2-4 years in the cellar and it is going to be even better once the oak integrates into the wine. 90-92 Pts

2019 Château Trimoulet  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

Medium-bodied, round, plush and polished, the oak is still a bit out in front of all the fruit, licorice and smoke. Give it some time to better integrate. That being said, this is another vineyard that has made a big jump in quality, which is due in part to bringing in the team of Michel Rolland to consult. 89-91 Pts

2018 Château Trimoulet  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 90

Medium-bodied, fresh, fruity, soft, round and vibrant, the wine is already a pleasure to drink with its earthy, plummy, structured character. 90 Points

Medium-bodied, soft, round and forward, elegant red fruits with an earthy, tobacco leaf and dark cherry edge -- quite nice this year. Another wine that has taken a big jump up in quality, which is due in part to bringing in Jean-Luc Thunevin as a consultant. 89-91 Pts

2014 Château Trimoulet  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 87

Using 75% Merlot with 25% Cabernet Franc to produce a sweet, jammy strawberry nose, this medium-bodied wine with a soft, smooth character will offer most of its charms in its youth. 86-88 Pts

2012 Château Trimoulet  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 87

Forward, soft, medium bodied and ready for prime time drinking in its youth, the soft finish leaves you with licorice, espresso and cherries. 87 Points

From a typical Right Bank blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, this is the second vintage for Nicolas Thienpont at Trimoulet. Medium-bodied, simple, dry, green and over oaked. 85-87 Pts

2011 Château Trimoulet  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 88

The debut vintage for the team of Nicolas Thienpont at this estate produced a medium bodied, forward, licorice, black cherry and espresso scented wine that is already approachable. Drink this young. 88 Points

Starting with the 2011 vintage, Nicolas Thienpont began consulting this semi-obscure St. Emilion property. Earth, black cherry and smoky aromas lead to a soft, round-textured St. Emilion with minerality and red berry fruits. 88-90 Pts

2009 Château Trimoulet  (St. Émilion Grand Cru) 87

Medium bodied, light, fresh, forward, early drinking style of Right Bank wine. Light tannins, soft textures and a delicate, raspberry, cherry and thyme finish that is ready for current drinking. This is not a wine to age. 87 Points
