Gevrey Chambertin "Ostrea" - 2016 - Jean Louis Trapet


TRAPET jean-Louis

A cuvée of Pinot Noir from vines of which the oldest were planted in 1913, spread over 4 parcels for a total of 2.5 ha, all representing very well situated climats. Vinification: traditional, without SO2, with indigenous yeasts and gravity... The fruit of environmentally respectful viticulture.
Jean-Louis Trapet is part of an extremely select circle of the 10 greatest vignerons of the Côte de Nuits. His family estate, founded by his great-grandfather in 1870, is composed of around 15 hectares of the most beautiful vine parcels around Gevrey. With his wife Andrée, the couple also runs an estate in Alsace, with 6 hectares near Riquewihr. Jean-Louis is a vigneron who respects his environment, is very attentive to his vines, is a committed biodynamic winemaker, is non-interventionist in the winery, and uses little to no sulphur. His wines undergo long, gentle maturation, and certain cuvées are even vinified whole cluster and focused on fruit aromas. Other, more classic cuvées are made to best express the complexity of these legendary climats. A few words from Jean-Louis: “Wine is one of the most civilized things in existence. In my capacity as a wine grower, the path of gentleness and respect enables me to make my way towards the highest degree of expression of my soils.”
