A pure and mineral Riesling! More info

“My duty and passion for getting the best from these vines that reveal so much of the place they grow is fundamental and irrepressible”. With these words, Andrée expresses what drives the work on her terroir. This cuvée is 100% Riesling, planted in a chalky terroir. The surface area used is somewhat minimal, with one hectare for around 5,000 bottles. The domain has grown its vines biodynamically since 2003, and the grapes are picked by hand. This superb Riesling is frank and pure. Its palate is powerful with strong, floral aromas. With its beautiful balance, the finish reveals a citrus side and a certain roundness. Serve the cuvée at about 11 or 12°C. It can be enjoyed young or in a few years – in this time, it will develop smoky notes along with hints of honey. Pair this Riesling with a salmon crumble or a veal blanquette.

Riesling Riquewihr Trapet serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Crumble de saumon et courgettes confites, Blanquette de Veau.

Peak: Drink until 2032

    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.
