Description

Seventh generation Gevrey-Chambertin estate and one of the largest holders of Chambertin.

Jean-Louis Trapet is one of the great names in Gevrey-Chambertin. He is fashioning wines of purity, finesse and elegance. 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 and deserves its place among the very top names of the appellation.

A passion for Biodynamic viticulture

Jean-Louis Trapet is a visionary frontrunner of biodynamic viticulture and one of the most dedicated biodynamic winemakers in Burgundy. The vineyards have been fully farmed under biodynamic principles since 1996 and have been certified biodynamic since 2009. Among the pioneers of natural viticulture in the region and they continue to lead the way in biodynamic farming.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

50 acres – 2 parcels

When the harvest comes in, having already been sorted in the vineyard, it is hand-sorted once more then and de-stemmed to a degree, dependent on the vintage.

Cold maceration of between 5 and 7 days encouraging greater depth of colour and more intense aromatics, without extracting too harsh tannins. Lightly crushed, there is then a long cuvaison, for more gentle extraction. Fermentation is carried out in open top vats, with natural yeasts.

The wines are aged for 15 to 18 months in barrel, the proportion of new wood depending on the wine. The purpose of the oak, in the Trapets’ view, is to facilitate controlled oxidation of the young wines. The wines remain in cask for between 12 and 18 months before bottling.

The Wine Advocate Tasting Note:

The lovely 2020 Bourgogne Rouge wafts from the glass with aromas of cherries and wild berries mingled with loamy soil and peonies. Medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with powdery tannins and a vibrant core of fruit, it’s indicative of what a success this vintage is chez Trapet. 89 Points, William Kelley, Jan 2022  DRINK 2021-2036

Allen Meadows’ Burghound Tasting Note:

Here too the nose is mildly reduced to be sure to give this either some air or a few years of bottle aging. More interesting are the slightly finer textured middle weight flavors that display very good persistence if not quite the same complexity. This too is worth considering though in this case, I would suggest holding it for at least two years first. 87 Points, January 2022
