Domaine Trapet Pere et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru 2014
20 years of biodynamic Domaine Trapet Pere et Fils produces one of the finest wines in Burgundy. The aromas of the wine range from dried fruits, perfectly ripe berries to spicy and toasty notes. The wine is very well-balanced and overwhelmingly charming, needs some time to mature though.

AWARDS AND REVIEWS

Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Chambertin Grand Cru from J L Trapet showed some stem addition on the nose, although there is sufficient fruit to support and absorb it over time. Indeed, with aeration it gains more harmony and the whole bunch influence seems to recede. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a superb thread of acidity, grippy in the mouth with a tightly wound, quite firm and masculine finish and a hint of tobacco on the aftertaste. This is a Chambertin surfeit with personality and nobility. Tasted September 2017.

The 2014 Chambertin Grand Cru comes from three parcels of vine, the oldest planted way back in 1919. This vintage includes whole bunch fruit and sees around 50% new oak. It is bridled with a sense of grandeur on the nose as those luscious and mineral-laden black fruit march out from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, and tightly wound blackberry and blueberry fruit that frame the precise, focused finish. You know, this may well be the finest Chambertin that I have ever tasted from Trapet. —Neal Martin,
