The 2010 Chambertin is arguably the most complete of the Trapet Grand Crus. The Chambertin is distinguished for its seamless, generous fruit and totally inviting personality. Crushed flowers, sweet spices and licorice are some of the many notes that develop in the glass, adding complexity and depth to the expansive, creamy finish. The 2010 Chambertin was stunning a year ago, it is stunning today and my impression is it will always be magnificent, even if it is likely to go through a stubborn period somewhere along the way. Anticipated maturity: 2025-2045. ||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.
