    Cuvée presentation

    The fruit of biodynamic agriculture, this Gevrey-Chambertin is a wonderful example of what this legendary appellation can offer. Its powerful and concentrated nose unveils dark fruit and violet notes which, with time, will evolve to develop tertiary hints (gentle spices, dried fruit). The palate isn’t left behind and reveal the same profile, marked by a strong, tannic base. This is a wine that will benefit from a small amount of ageing before fully flourishing.

    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.
