The history of Château Trimoulet and linked to the Jean family who has owned the estate since 1802. For the first time in the history of this estate, a woman is in charge. Cécile Jean, 30, represents with her husband David Dumont the ninth generation family. In 2016, Laurent Dassault, President of Dassault Wine Estates, acquires this Grand Cru of Saint-Emilion, bringing the surface area of ??Dassault Wine Estates’ properties to 60 hectares. This purchase reinforces the presence of the Dassault family in Saint-Emilion, who have owned the Châteaux La Fleur since 2002 and Faurie de Souchard since 2013.
The terroir of Château Trimoulet consists of 17 hectares of vines planted in 65% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. The originality of Château Trimoulet is not so much its encépagement but the nature of the grounds. Indeed, the presence of blue clay, molasses type Fronsadais (limestone clay present in particular on the plateau of Pomerol) makes this terroir particularly qualitative. However, until 2009, Château Trimoulet was not one of the flagship properties of the appellation. But the arrival of a new generation has helped a lot. The grape harvests are manual and the vinification is fragmented in concrete vats. The aging is 12 months in barrels of which 45% are new and 55% of a wine.
At the tasting, Château Trimoulet offers a wine with an ideal, fine and elegant evolution.
