Domaine Trapet

Jean-Louis Trapet stands for Pinot Noir from Gevrey-Chambertin. Except for a few locations in Marsannay and only small amounts of Gamay and Chardonnay, this one grape variety is the core of his work in the village at the Côte de Nuits. Together with his wife Andrée, they also run the winery Trapet Alsace from our range.

For Jean-Louis, the Expression of its sites everything. The quality of the plots is outstanding. From the village location over very good premier crus the vineyard portfolio reaches up to the Grand Cru vineyards Chapelle-Chambertin, Latricières-Chambertin and Chambertin. They work with the greatest respect and care in the vineyards and want to be able to taste this effort and the clear site differences later in the glass. Jean-Louis wants the vine over the cycle of a year only accompany and not push. In the cellar he continues this idea and the grapes are gently pressed after manual sorting. The aging in small wooden barrels is used here so skillfully that one never has the feeling with the wines that the wood could take over.

The wines live from precision and elegance. The terroir and its interpretation in the wine are clearly recognizable.

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.
