Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Latricieres-Chambertin Grand Cru, 2015 (Organic)

ABV: 12.5%
Region: Burgundy
Country: France
Producer: Domaine Trapet Père et Fils

“.. The sleek, intense and once again highly sophisticated middle-weight plus flavours brim with both minerality and dry extract that buffers the even firmer tannic spine shaping the hugely long and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is relatively succulent for a young Latricières but I suspect that the present inviting mouthfeel will be replaced in short order by something firmer and more austere. In short, this is stunningly good but it is not likely to make for especially inviting early drinking.” 96 Points, Burghound, January 2018

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

Latricières-Chambertin: 75 hectares, 1 parcel – oldest vine planted in 1938

“There are soils which are venerated in the domaine, Les Latricières are part of them. Magnificently exposed, these ” little marvels ” offer the most noble and subtle essences to the fruit of our vines”

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 wines are essentially neither fined nor filtered but this depends on the vintage. At any rate no more that 10% would ever be filtered.

The Wine Advocate Tasting Note

The 2015 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru cannot quite match its “sister”, the Chapelle-Chambertin, in terms of precision and energy on the nose, here more conservative as you would expect—more correct and well behaved with its blackberry and raspberry leaf aromas, though there is still fine mineralité. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, notes of cold stone, hints of dried blood tincturing the black fruit with that energy filtering through on the finish. This is composed and utterly charming. 93-95 Points – Neal Martin, December 2016.

Allen Meadows’ Burghound Tasting Note

A discreet application of wood frames the even more complex nose of high-toned, cool and airy aromas of red and dark cherry, forest floor, rose petal and spice elements. The sleek, intense and once again highly sophisticated middle-weight plus flavours brim with both minerality and dry extract that buffers the even firmer tannic spine shaping the hugely long and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is relatively succulent for a young Latricières but I suspect that the present inviting mouthfeel will be replaced in short order by something firmer and more austere. In short, this is stunningly good but it is not likely to make for especially inviting early drinking. 96 Points –January 2018

Food Pairing

A great partner of guinea fowl, chicken, duck, rack of lamb or a simple steak (no heavy sauces. Also good partner with cheeses (not pungent)
