Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru "Petite Chapelle" - 2017 - Jean Louis Trapet


TRAPET jean-Louis

A cuvée of Pinot Noir from one of the oldest parcels of the estate, acquired in 1877, a parcel near the Grand Cru climat Grande Chapelle. The climat Petite Chapelle, ranked a Premier Cru, is also known as Ergot. A single parcel of just 40 ares. 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.”
