A fine terroir and an illustrious wine maker come together.  More info

Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Capita is a great wine that is characterised as much by its power and density as by its velvety body. The aromatic palette is centred on black berries (cherry in particular), the mouth contains a slight acidity, and the length is impressive. This is a cuvée that has enormous potential but will need several years of aging to express all its qualities.

Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Capita Jean et Jean-Louis Trapet serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Chateaubriand grillé, Bécasse rôtie, Poule faisane farcie aux champignons.

  • Vintage score: 16/20

    Information about domain Jean Trapet et fils

    Jean-Louis Trapet is an articulate man, at peace in a world where "men are mere mortals". And since wine is all about sharing and transmission, his great-great-grandfather's legacy, founded in 1870, has been kept alive.
    Today he takes care of 15 hectares of vineyard, among the best-located in Gevrey. He is merely the custodian of this treasure: three grands crus (Chambertin, Chapelle-Chambertin and Latricières-Chambertin), two premiers crus (Petite Chapelle and Clos Prieur), Marsannay and Bourgogne.
    Since 1995 the entire domain uses biodynamics: free of any harsh practices in the vineyard as well as in the cellars, which respects the natural balance of the wine. This approach is above all based on observation: to protect the vines while monitoring their growth and development. Maturating is a decisive stage at the Trapet domain: once the vinification is finished (with minimum intervention), the wines are taken down to the cellar and put in barrels to mature slowly over the winter months at their own speed.
