The 2010 Chapelle-Chambertin is a haunting wine graced with exquisite aromatics and layers of silky fruit. This is all class and elegance. The 2010 boasts striking inner perfume and sweetness all the way through to the finish. There is a level of textural brilliance and finesse here that is just plain gorgeous. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2040. ||Jean-Louis Trapet is a quiet man, but when you make wines like these, words aren’t necessary. The Trapet 2010s are striking, but like everywhere else there isn’t much to go around. Trapet did not make his Gevrey villages Ostrea and the 1er Crus Clos Prieur and Petite Chapelle because yields were so small. None of the 2010s had at the time of my visit. I also tasted a number of 2009s that have turned out as good or better than I had expected. Trapet doesn’t seem to get anywhere near the recognition the wines deserve. There may be trendier domaines out there, but few that are at this level.||Various US Importers, including: Polaner Selections, Mt. Kisco, NY; tel.
