Domaine Trapet is a wine company comprised of two estates, one in Alsace, the other in Burgundy. The company in its current dual-region configuration formed when Andrée Trapet inherited her parents' vineyards in Alsace in 2002. Her husband Jean-Louis has run Domaine Trapet Père et Fils in Gevrey-Chambertin since 1990, when he took over from his father Jean.
The latter property is one of the great historic estates of the Côte de Nuits. The deep, concentrated wines from these grand cru sites are the flagship bottlings, but the Trapet Père et Fils portfolio also includes fine Pinot Noir from three premier cru and two village-level vineyards, as well as highly rated red and white Marsannay and Bourgogne Rouge and Blanc.
The portfolio of Domaine Trapet-Alsace includes bottlings from five grand crus: Schoenenbourg, Schlossberg, Sporen, Sonnenglanz and the recently added Mambourg. Village wines (Riesling and Gewurztraminer) come from Riquewihr and Beblenheim. A multivarietal Alsace Blanc, A Minima, is the counterpart of a Bourgogne Passetoutgrains Gamay-Pinot Noir red.
Both estates are farmed on biodynamic principles.

(2005) A brooding but fresh nose trimmed in a bit of wood spice offers positively gorgeous aromatic breadth andmerges into intense, well muscled and very focused full-bodied and overtly powerful flavors that are concentrated andvery firmly structured yet the structure is almost completely buffered by the buckets of extract that confer an almostvelvety quality to the hugely long finish. This is still very primary and will require the better part of two decades to reallybe arrive at its full potential. A seriously impressive Cham that is brilliantly balanced. Wow!
(2008) A pure, airy and very cool nose of pungent minerality and slightly sauvage red berries is the epitome ofaromatic elegance and serves as a graceful introduction to the broad-shouldered and sleekly muscular flavors thatpossess good freshness and plenty of vibrancy while culminating in an intensely mineral-driven, focused and powerfulfinish that is wonderfully persistent, linear and extremely tight. This too will need plenty of time to unwind, which Iestimate at between 14 to 18 years.
