RATINGS

90-94Stephen Tanzer

Syrah-like aromas of black cherry, plum, espresso, bacon fat and smoky oak. Fat, lush and quite rich, with harmonious acidity giving shape to the flavors. Very rich, very strong finish.

PRODUCER

Domaine Trapet Pere & Fils

Domaine Trapet Pere et Fils is one of the larger estates in Gevrey-Chambertin, in Burgundy. The estate is comprised of 30 acres, including significant parcels in the Grand Cru vineyards of Chambertin, Chapelle-Chambertin and Latricieres-Chambertin. The Trapet family has owned vineyards in the area since 1870, but only started bottling their wine in the 1960s. In the early 1990s the estate was divided in half so a new generation could own their own enterprises. Domaine Trapet became Domaine Trapet Pere et Fils, and it is run by Jean-Louis, son of Jean Trapet. The estate is known for its three Grand Crus, though it also produces several Premier Crus and villages wines.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
