PREVIOUS VINTAGE NOTES:
The 2015 vintage at Château Trillol is very good ripe fruit with a hint of spices and tobacco and vinified with the help of the winemaking teams at Châteaux Angludet and Palmer led by Ben Sichel. It is already showing really well as it gently matures over the next 5 years. Its pedigree is unmatched in Corbières it was recently awarded 'Prix d'Excellence' in the Concours Général Agricole, the highest award in France for food and wine, for a vintage that was not as good as the 2015.
What do the professionals think? (previous vintages):
"My grandfather fell in love with this place nearly 30 years ago. Everything here appealed to him: the terroir, the beauty of the place, its history, its authenticity and the bold idea of making outstanding wines. My father and uncles have pursued his dream. I love opening a bottle of Trillol to share with my friends." Max Sichel, Silver medal - Decanter World Wine Awards 2017
"Complex nuances of ripe fruits and underbrush. Concentrated, full-bodied and rounded on the palate." Le Guide Hachette des Vins
"A blend of Grenache, Carignan and Syrah, this is deliciously focused with a savoury twist to the vibrant raspberry and black cherry fruit. The high altitude of these vineyards helps keep freshness and structure in the wine." Jamie Goode, Sunday Express
"A warm, spicy, juicy, comforting Grenache/Syrah/Carignan blend from the fabled Sichel familys estate in Corbières, its fully mature and begging to be drunk. The vineyards are being revamped and this is the last of Trillol in its current form and you'd be crazy not to snap it up."
