An interesting wine perfectly macerated by the Trapet brothers. More info

This wine is the fruit of a collaboration between Pierre and Louis Trapet. It is made from vines that grow in a clay-sandstone terroir in Pflixbourg, not far from Colmar. The vines are cultivated biodynamically, meaning that they are closely cared for, and the grapes are harvested by hand. The Gewurztraminer juice is fermented in amphora containers before a maceration lasting a month – this is what confers such an incredible, rich texture. It is surprisingly orange in colour. For a maceration wine, this cuvée is wonderful in its youth! It has a frank nose that evolves into notes of dried fruit and citrus peel. Its palate is silky, balanced with delicate tannins. Why not try it with cheese? Something like a blue cheese or one with a hard rind would be wonderful. This maceration Gewurztraminer has an aging potential of over 10 years.

Gewurztraminer Ambre Trapet serve at a temperature of 13°C. 

Peak: Drink until 2029

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.
