2012 Chambertin Domaine Trapet

Firmly in the top handful of wines of the vintage, this is a stunning effort and worth serious consideration to any collector. Trapet is one of the great domaines of Burgundy, rightly famous for their flagship Chambertin holdings. Their wines are rich and powerful while also maintaining a suave elegance to balance. Superb stuff, built for the long haul and a lovely addition to the cellar. Only seven 2012 red Burgundies have a higher score from the influential Allen Meadows and it is a superstar list including the likes of the hyper-expensive DRC Romanee Conti and Mugnier Musigny. The only Chambertin from the entire vintage to beat it is Rousseau’s 97 point effort.

This is ultra-cool and restrained aromatically with its airy and even elegant aromas of intensely floral, spicy and stony wild dark berry scents. There is a gorgeous texture to the equally mineral-inflected and muscular broad-shouldered and impressively concentrated flavors that possess a Zen-like harmony on the impeccably well-balanced, moderately austere and hugely long finish. This should be terrific if given at least a decade's snooze in a cool cellar. January 2014. www.burghound.com Drink 2030+
