"Explosively long" - 2016 Trapet Chambertin

Posted by Ian McFadden

There is likely no grander, more soaring expression of red Burgundy than Chambertin.

Few wines have blown my mind the way Chambertin consistently has.

For many of you, all of this sounds trite. Chambertin is one of the legendary wines of the world.

The elite examples of Chambertin (think of people like Leroy and Rousseau) are hunted down for thousands of dollars.

Outside of this lofty realm, Trapet's Chambertin has become one of my favorite expressions of this Grand Cru.

Over the past decade, Trapet's wines have really entered the zone. They've assumed a clarity and a levity that's impossible not to notice.

This is on bold display in the 2016 Chambertin. Simply put, it's an aristocratic wine with incredible precision, mineral accented verve and weightless impact. The concentration, multifaceted personality, and outright purity is really stunning.

I have to say that Trapet really hit the mark in 2016. This is a prime vintage to check out what's happening at the domaine. I should warn that quantities are very limited. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try out best.
