“..The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red and black fruit tinged with fig, cinnamon and baking spices, lively and tensile with real frisson toward the finish.

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 2016 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru, which contains 40% whole bunch fruit like the Chapelle Chambertin, has those typical traits of correctness and strictness on the nose. The black fruit feels a bit aloof and distant, but that is what you expect—this is not a Charmes-Chambertin! The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red and black fruit tinged with fig, cinnamon and baking spices, lively and tensile with real frisson toward the finish. What an outstanding Latricières from Jean-Louis, yet another great success this vintage. 94-96 Points – Neal Martin, December 2017.

Allen Meadows’ Burghound Tasting Note

This too is sufficiently reduced as to render the nose impossible to assess. Otherwise there is a significant difference in mouthfeel to the more tension-filled and delineation if less rich medium weight plus flavors that are also much more mineral-driven on the super-saline finish that is equally persistent if much more youthfully austere. While this is qualitatively similar to the Chapelle but it couldn’t be more different intrinsically. Textbook Latricières. 92-94 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)
