Why We Love This Wine

The 7th generation Domaine Trapet is one of the greatest estates of Gevrey-Chambertin, with superb holdings of 3 of the top Grand Crus in the village. While the family has been important Gevrey-Chambertin Vineyard owners since 1870, it was not until the 1960s that they began to bottle a majority of their production and offer them for sale directly to clients. In addition to their excellent holdings, the Trapets hold a unique place in Burgundian history being the 1st ones to graft vines during the phyloxerra epidemic thereby saving the vineyards of Burgundy. Today their vines are made with an emphasis on elegance, purity, & finesse. Trapet's 3 great Grand Crus, including the outstanding Domaine Trapet Pere et Fils, are all crafted to really highlight their underlying terroirs belonging to the top echelon of Gevrey-Chambertin Grand Crus in terms of aromatics, flavor complexity, expression of terroir, & ageing potential lending a singular elegance, grace, & purity to their wines. This wine shows remarkable definition, raciness, & complexity displaying great amplitude of flesh, a caressing texture, & beautiful depth tightened by its fine tannins, in the same spirit of a Chambertin chapel. Its saline, dry mineral finish is delicious. Enjoy this wine at its peak from 2022 to 2030 & pair it with grilled meats, Lamb Chops, Minced Pigeon with Hoisin Sauce in Lettuce Wraps, Steak Tartare, Roast Duck Breast with Plum Sauce, & Pot Au Feu (French Beef Stew).

Winemaker / Tasting Notes

Vinified with over half whole cluster, the 2017n Gevrey Chambertin Premier Cru Petite Chapelle offers up a pretty bouquet of cassis, dark chocolate, and rich earthy tones. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, mineral & tensile with lovely purity and very fine-grained tannins underpinned by tangy acids.
