Trapet's 2019 Chambertin Grand Cru is a profound wine in the making and it can keeps company with vintage's finest. Wafting from the glass with deep aromas of cherries and cassis complemented by notions of raw cocoa blood orange smoked meats rich soil tones and spices it's full-bodied multidimensional and complete with a weightless elegant profile despite its prodigious concentration its structuring tannins entirely concealed in an ample core of lively vibrant fruit.
Rich dense dark purple. The bouquet has an appropriate sense of majesty absolutely in the out on the rim Trapet style but with the nobility of its terroir. A wonderful wealth of fruit a wine full of emotion as well as its own innate quality. Full of fruit yet backward at the same time exuberant but with finesse.v
This is aromatically similar to the Latricières though it's even cooler with a bit more earth floral and spice influences. There is outstanding power to the bigger richer and more concentrated big-bodied flavors that also brim with minerality before terminating in a balanced overtly austere and hugely long finale. This too is a classically styled Chambertin and the quality is superb though this is very much a buy it and forget you own it wine. In a word marvelous. (Drink starting 2039)
The 2019 Chambertin Grand Cru has an intense bouquet of blackberry briar and raspberry interlaced with wilted rose petals and light ferrous aromas. The palate is very supple and voluminous fleshy and generous but maybe not quite as pixelated as the Latricières-Chambertin. It fans out wonderfully though and the lightly spiced finish just misses the intellect of Latricières. This represents a very serious Chambertin and I would not be surprised if it lands at the top of my banded score. (Drink between 2024-2045)
