Product: 2017-0750-00-8120069
  • Ready, but will improve


The Domaine is currently run by Jean-Louis Trapet, son of Jean and cousin of the Rossignol Trapets. he domaine has been certified by Biodivin since 1998 and Demeter from 2005.
Jean-Louis would rather talk about the philosophy of wine than the detail of winemaking, but the broad brush outline is partial destemming, a cool pre-fermentation maceration before a long fermentation, then the descent by gravity of the wine to the barrel cellar, with 30 to 75% new oak used according to the cuvée. He uses no sulphur at harvest or during the vinification and maturation processes, just adding a small dose at bottling.

The wines are succulent and rounded and make an interesting contrast to the tighter, more precise style of Jean-Louis’s cousins at Domaine Rossignol-Trapet. These are wines that tend more towards elegance and finesse rather than power and extract - the exception being Le Chambertin which displays concentrated fruit and great intensity.
