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. The Domaine consists of 15 hectares 13.5 hectares of which are cultivated with the emblematic grape variety of Burgundy: Pinot Noir. The Gevrey Chambertin village comes from 8 different plots covering a total of 3 hectares. This 2017 Gevrey showcases a gorgeous aromatic purity with high-toned red fruit notes & touches of undergrowth. This is a wine of medium amplitude that will only benefit from extended cellaring. Enjoy this now until 2030.
Revealing aromas of sweet berry fruits, grilled meats, & dark chocolate, this lovely red is full-bodied , ample, & layered with a supple & nicely concentrated palate that culminates in a long, mineral finish.
