Château Trotanoy has been a part of négociant JP Moueix since 1953, alongside Pétrus. It is a Bordeaux wine estate in the Pomerol appellation, regarded as one of the great wines of the right bank. The Merlot-dominant wine is known for its decadent, rich style, and its prices are among the highest in Bordeaux.

History of Moueix

Internationally renowned, Établissements Jean-Pierre Moueix has become a hallmark for the top wines of Bordeaux. The company is the largest wine merchant on the Right Bank, distributing fine wines from Bordeaux and California worldwide. Family run since 1937, they are also the owner and producer of several prestigious crus, including Château La Fleur-Pétrus, Château Trotanoy, and Château Hosanna in Pomerol; Château Bélair-Monange Premier Grand Cru Classé in Saint-Émilion; and, in Napa Valley, California, Dominus Estate and Ulysses.

Jean-Pierre Moueix was born in 1913, moved to Saint-Émilion in 1929. At the time, the wines of Pomerol and Saint-Émilion were not yet widely recognized. Jean-Pierre Moueix, a visionary, foresaw great potential both in the Merlot grape and in its ability to age when grown in the best terroirs of his adopted region.

His sons and now his grandson, Edouard Moueix run the company together with their dedicated staff to produce, distribute, and promote an exceptional selection of over 200 wines.
