Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Marsannay Village Rouge 2018

R625.00 inc. VAT
"From lieux-dits Grand Poirier and Grasse Têtes comes Trapet's 2018 Marsannay, a nicely structured wine that offers up aromas of raspberries, cherries, raw cocoa and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, lively and precise, it's framed by fine, powdery tannins and succulent acids." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin “Ostrea” 2018

R1,250.00 inc. VAT
"The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Ostrea is showing beautifully, unwinding in the glass with a deeper-pitched bouquet of cassis, dark berry fruit, baking chocolate, rich soil tones and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and mineral, this has a more structured, tensile profile than the Domaine's regular Gevrey, as well as greater reserves of tightly wound fruit. As readers will remember, this cuvée derives from old vines in the commune of Brochon."- William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Domaine Trapet Pere et Fils Chambertin Grand Cru 2018

"This is aromatically similar to the Latricières but perhaps even a bit cooler and with more earth and sauvage elements. There is a really lovely purity to the sleek, dense, intense and markedly powerful large-scaled flavors that exude an almost pungent minerality on the austere, serious and wonderfully persistent and very firmly structured finale. As the Trapet Chambertin often is, this is not a monster of concentration or structure but rather one of refinement and grace." - Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin “Ostrea” 2017 Magnum

R2,605.00 inc. VAT
"There is a whiff of herbal tea to the attractively spicy and notably floral aromas of mostly cool red berry and soft earth. I like the sense of vibrancy to the delicious and solidly well-detailed middle weight flavors that offer reasonably good depth with excellent length. Note that this should develop better complexity with age and overall, it's a fine villages level wine." - Alan Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Trapet Pere et Fils Gevrey-Chambertin Premier Cru Capita 2017

R2,160.01 inc. VAT
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Capita is a blend of fruit from the premiers crus En Ergot, Corbeaux and Combottes, supplemented—if I understood Jean-Louis Trapet correctly—by a visual selection of small-berried clusters from Petite Chapelle and Clos Prieur which are not destemmed. The wine offers up attractive notes of red and black cherries, raw cocoa, espresso roast and cedary new wood, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample palate with bright acids and fine-grained tannins. - William Kelley, Wine Advocate

Domaine Trapet Pere & Fils Chambertin Grand Cru 2017

"A background application of wood surrounds the cool and airy aromas of dark cherry, plum, earth and a whisper of the sauvage. There is terrific intensity to the beautifully delineated mineral-driven flavors that possess a refined mouthfeel before culminating in a saline, focused and strikingly persistent finish. This is almost a hypothetical combination of the Chapelle and the Latricières with the richness and volume of the former allied with the minerality, finesse and power of the latter. Patience advised." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
