Jean-Louis Trapet is one of the great names in Gevrey-Chambertin. He is fashioning wines that are elegant and pure, much like himself. He is creating the soil-driven and absolutely pure wines of his father and grandfather’s era. While the estate is best known for its three grand crus, the quality at Domaine Trapet is outstanding up and down the hierarchy of their vineyard holdings. The vineyards have been fully farmed under biodynamic principles since 1996 and have been certified biodynamic since 2009.
Vineyard & Vinification Note
50 acres – 2 parcels
The Wine Advocate Tasting Note
Aromas of pear, lemon oil and citrus blossom introduce Trapet’s 2018 Bourgogne Blanc, a medium-bodied, delicately aromatic wine that’s pure and precise, concluding with a saline finish. 87 Points, William Kelley, February 2020
Burghound Tasting Note
An agreeably fresh nose features notes of various white orchard fruit aromas that are laced with top notes of citrus and floral wisps. There is an attractive vibrancy to the appealingly textured a saline-inflected flavors that conclude in a clean and nicely dry if not especially complex finale. 86 Points, January 2020
