Chambertin Grand Cru 2006
This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
Sweet aromas of cherry, strawberry, smoke and earth. With an excellent tannic underpinning for a slow evolution in bottle. Boasts wonderful volume without any heaviness. - Winery
Grape: 100% Pinot Noir
Domaine Trapet Pere et Fils is one of the larger estates in Gevrey-Chambertin, in Burgundy. The estate is comprised of 30 acres, including significant parcels in the Grand Cru vineyards of Chambertin, Chapelle-Chambertin and Latricieres-Chambertin. The Trapet family has owned vineyards in the area since 1870, but only started bottling their wine in the 1960s. In the early 1990s the estate was divided in half so a new generation could own their own enterprises. Domaine Trapet became Domaine Trapet Pere et Fils, and it is run by Jean-Louis, son of Jean Trapet. The estate is known for its three Grand Crus, though it also produces several Premier Crus and villages wines.
