Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Prieur, Domaine Rossignol-Trapet, Côte de Nuits, Burgundy, France, 2018
Grape: 100% Pinot Noir from a Premier Cru vineyard immediately below the Mazis-Chambertin Grand Cru. Majority whole-bunch fruit. Oak aged (approx 25% new wood).
An estate that has been run by the same family for several generations, Domaine Rossignol-Trapet is situated in the very heart of Burgundy, Gevery Chambertin, home of the prestigious grape variety Pinot Noir. Only natural methods have been used in the vineyards and during vinification. This can lead to the presence of light deposits in the wine which in no way alter the taste or hinder its ageing potential. Quality has soared since brothers Nicolas and David Rossignol converted the Domaine to biodynamic viticulture. In particular, the wines display significantly more depth and concentration than when they took over from their father in the 1990s.
"Beetroot, rhubarb, cranberry, a slight wisp of smoke and toast, with a mushroomy character too. Finishes with a hint of something medicinal that leaves a rather austere note - needs more time. (RH)"17+/20 points, Richard Hemming MW, jancisrobinson.com, January 2019
Gevrey Chambertin wines are powerful, yet velvet-smooth, and will pair well with beef steak, lamb and strong cheeses, or with some bottle age, try with game birds.
