Domaine Trapet
Riquewihr Gewürztraminer, 2019

Andrée Trapet (Jean-Louis’ wife, see Domaine Trapet Père & Fils in our Burgundy section) took over her parents’ vineyards in 2002. An only daughter with a profound affection for her local soil, she converted the Domaine to biodynamic methods. The estate comprises some of the best Grand crus vineyards in Alsace. The wines, like their Burgundy relatives, are all about finesse and elegance. They are characterised by purity, solidity, minerality, density like a diamond, viscosity, verticality, and everything is wrapped by delicacy and softness. From Gevrey-Chambertin to Riquewihr, the Trapet family is taking us on a journey to remember.
