Domaine Trapet
Schlossberg Grand Cru Riesling

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.

The Schlossberg hillside, at an altitude of 230 to 350 metres, stretches north of Kaysersberg and  Kientzheim over the crystalline  basement of the Vosges mountains. The Kaysersberg migmatites are metamorphic grauwacke-sandstones and shales from  Devonian age. At the northeastern part of the vineyard these rocks are pierced by the intrusive granite of thannenkirch. the acid siliceous soil of excellent fertility is a weathered crystalline scree with some basic inclusions in the area east of the old castle. The clayey coarse sand is mineral rich and determines the finesse and multiplicity of aromas in the wines.
