About this Item

2009 - 2010 Chambertin
2 (1 x 2) 750ml

Domaine Trapet comprises of two estates – one in Alsace and the other in Burgundy. The Burgundy estate was formerly named Domaine Louis Trapet and is now run by Jean-Louis Trapet, the son of Jean, and his wife, Andrée Trapet. They have managed the domaine in Gevrey-Chambertin since 1990. It is one of the great historic estates of the Côte de Nuits, holding 16 hectares of biodynamically-farmed vineyards in Le Chambertin, Latricières-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin. While known for their deep, concentrated Grands Crus, Trapet Père et Fils also produce Pinot Noirs from three Premier Cru and two village-level vineyards.

Critics Ratings

2009

‘(50% new oak, the same as the Chapelle-Chambertin): Good medium red. Wonderfully complex, high-pitched nose combines musky raspberry, strong minerality, lavender and wild herbs; soil-driven but not earthy. Like liquid silk on entry, then sappy and imploded in the mouth, with complex soil hints, no hard edges and a wonderfully light touch for such a seamless wine. Less high-pitched than the nose suggests, but this amazingly fine-grained Chambertin is lifted and framed by superb mineral energy. Really explodes with aeration, finishing with noble tannins and a powerful impression of terroir. This should evolve in bottle for decades.’ – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, 96+/100 (Mar 2012)

2010

‘(about 50% vendange entier): Good full, deep red. Profound nose offers red and darker fruits, smoked meat, rose petal, minerals and complex soil tones; shows similarities to the Latricieres but is less expressive today--and a bit wilder. Big, rich and mouthfilling but without any undue impression of weight; sweetness is restrained today. Huge, classically dry wine with a broad, palate-staining finish that throws off notes of licorice, spices and white pepper. Perfectly ripe but not a bit overripe. Trapet told me his grand cru vineyards produced about 25 hectoliters per hectare in 2010.’ – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, 96+/100 (Mar 2013)
