Domaine Trapet is not exactly a new name in Burgundy. They've been growing grapes in Gevrey-Chambertin since the 1800s, and have amazing parcels in all the best vineyards, up to and including Le Chambertin. Back in the day, they sold their best grapes to the likes of Domaine Drouhin and Maison Leroy. But since the 1960s, they've been bottling their own wines. The style has fluctuated a bit, as styles have varied with the generations. Today the domaine is run by Jean-Louis Trapet, whose style can best be summarized as a laser-like focus on making delicious Pinot Noir. Here are the technicalities of that: light extraction (a touch of bâtonnage or punching down at the beginning of fermentation, but just remontage—pumping over—after that), very little new oak, and whole-cluster when the grapes are ideally healthy (which is quite often, as the farming is biodynamic). This sounds like what many of Burgundy's best are doing today. But in one area Trapet departs: while "reductive" wine-making is all the rage (limiting the wine's exposure to oxygen), Trapet likes to make his wines open and accessible from release, including by using as little sulfur as possible in the process. That's how he makes his Pinot Noir so delicious!

Professional Reviews


BH 93
"(Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru Red) Ironically given that Chambertin is every bit a "cool" terroir as is Latricières, this is slightly riper with ultra fresh and airy red pinot fruit liberally laced with earth and underbrush notes that continue onto the rich, full and equally serious medium full-bodied flavors that are textured, intense and perhaps even more mineral-driven, all culminating in a hugely long finish that has ample amounts of underlying tension. This doesn't quite have the size and weight of the monumental '05 but this is in the same league complexity-wise and will be capable of aging for 30 years with no trouble."

AG 93
"Good medium red. Sweet aromas of cherry, strawberry, smoke and earth. Plusher and wilder than the Latricieres, but with an excellent tannic underpinning for a slow evolution in bottle. Trapet notes that the crop level in 2006 was lower than that of 2005 (but bigger than 2007). Boasts wonderful volume without any heaviness. Very Chambertin." -Vinous

Focus On: Burgundy

Burgundy has long been the world's most famous wine region. But, underneath all the prestige, this region can be hard to get to know.

While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!

From the very basics of Burgundy's regions and wines to the specific terroirs of individual single vineyards--
everything you need to know about Bourgogne is just a click away!
