Description

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.

Tasting Note

This Riesling has floral and stony aromas with lemony notes and lovely mineral influence. With age, the mineral content is enhanced and the wine acquires a smooth sweet note.

Food Pairing

It goes remarkably well with Thai and oriental food. The weight of the wine, the power of its fruit and good acidity will all stand up to the more fragrant dishes of the east, matching the herbs, the spices, and the creamy coconut if needs be.  Also good with blue cheeses and creamy goat’s cheeses.
