The wines of Trapet
A Minima is a homage and a rarity at the same time. Freely after Julez ChauvetJean-Louis, a co-founder of the natural wine movement, does not add any sulfur to this red wine made of Pinot Noir and Gamay. And according to the nowadays still rarely lived tradition of the Passetoutgrain both grape varieties are planted mixed in this parcel. Chardonnays from Marsannay are becoming increasingly popular and are a welcome exception in the red wine bastion of northern Burgundy. We will certainly hear a lot more about this in the near future.
The Gevrey-Chambertin said wine is a cuvèe from eight plots around Trapet's home village. This wine has finesse and power in equal measure. The fine-grained tannin leads the close-meshed wine, which is present on the palate for so long, to an aromatically complex finish.
In the Grand Cru vineyards, no one has much contiguous property. As a result of the real estate divisions, the sites, which are not exactly huge anyway, are subdivided into smallest parcels. For instance, Jean-Louis owns only 0.6 hectares in the Chapelle-Chambertin.
The Le Chambertin makes wine connoisseurs all over the world go into raptures. A true myth and so rare. In this location, Trapet has just under two hectares, divided into three plots and can look back on partly 100 year old vines fall back on.
