2011 Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Rossignol-Trapet

Vintage Description

This is a super address if you are looking for wines with perfume and a silky texture. You won't find the deepest colours but you will find fabulous succulence on the palate. One can't help believing in the benefits of biodynamics when you see the energy that emanates from these fine, gracious wines.


Tasting Notes

Explosive nose. Ethereal, bejewelled, complete wine in a very gentle deceptive way. There is power here but it is hidden and this is a truly lovely, 'graceful' Chambertin. (AB/SM/AI)

17.5 Points, Jancis Robinson MW: "Denser than Latricières but less well balanced. A bit chewier on the finish. Impressive but no more fun. 2020-2035."

92-94 Points, Allen Meadows: "This possesses the most complex nose in the entire range with its cool, earthy and stubborn nose of bed and black currant, plum, violet and stone hints. There is both excellent richness and volume to the tautly muscular, concentrated and opulent big-bodied flavors that culminate in a lush and remarkably persistent finish. This is borderline seductive and that's not an adjective that I typically use to describe young Chambertin. 2026+."


Vineyard Information

The Burgondes arrived in the 5th Century and one of them called Bertin (Berht-in means the son of Berht) owned a field adjoining Clos de Bèze. The story goes that, following the example of his neighbours the monks from the Merovingian Abbey of Bèze, Bertin planted his field with the same grape variety. The wines were perfect and it wasn't long before the vineyards were named after its owner : the ??Champs de Bertin? (field of Bertin) and later becoming ??Chambertin?.

Domaine Rossignol-Trapet is lucky enough to possess parcels covering the entire slope (that is to say from the road to the woods). Consequently their Chambertin is situated in the heart of this terroir and is a perfect reflection of Chambertin. The vines have an average age of 55 years, planted between 1920 and 2002, and use exclusively pinot noir
