Château Trottevieille: Unveiling the Elegance of an Exceptional Terroir The name is told to be derived from the fact that an old lady lived there in this chartreuse in the 14th century. This lady would frequently stroll down to a nearby crossroads where stagecoaches made their stop during their journeys from Bordeaux. Given her penchant for hurrying to catch these coaches, the people of Saint-Émilion affectionately referred to her as 'la trotte vieille'—the 'old trot.' Elevated to the Premier Grand Cru of Saint-Émilion classification in 1955, Château TrotteVieille is celebrated as one of the finest wines in Saint-Émilion. Marcel Borie, smitten by its charm, acquired the property in 1947, and today, the estate is overseen by the Castéja family. Situated on a superb slope to the east of the village of Saint-Émilion, the vineyard encompasses a 12-hectare terroir, evenly divided between Merlot and Cabernet Franc, with a touch of Cabernet Sauvignon. Remarkably, Château TrotteVieille remains one of the rare estates to still cultivate ancient Cabernet Franc vines, tracing their roots back over 140 years, pre-dating the devastating phylloxera outbreak.
