The producer

The Trapet family have been a large landholder in northern Cote d’Or for generations. In 1993 the estate was divided to allow two dedicated winemakers to go their own way, as it turned out both into organic and biodynamic viticulture. Trapet also drew the style back from the heavily-oaked and extracted wines of previous generations to wines of elegance and purity with no lack of depth and richness.

The domaine farms 18ha hectares with plots in Le Chambertin, Latricieres-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin as well as five well-sited Premier Crus. All of these wines are worth considering and deliver (relative) value for money at this level. The Domaine rates the top three stars by the Revue de la Vins de France.

The wine

Trapet owns 0.56 hectares of land in Chapelle-Chambertin, a vineyard with rather shallow and lean topsoil why the wines tends to do well especially in cooler and wetter vintages. Trapet partially destems the fruit before fermentation and finally ages the wine in oak barrels, with up to 70% new oak. These are wines full of elegance and finesse, which are generally some of the most lively in the Cote de Nuits.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
