An idealistic and sensitive winemaker, Jean-Louis Trapet works as a virtuoso on his family estate, which he has raised to the top of the current Burgundy scene. Attentive and demanding, a convinced follower of biodynamics, he expresses in his wines the most infinite nuances of his terroir, finding tannins of a rare elegance and a level of complexity and accomplishment rarely reached.
Few estates can claim such grace, especially since it extends across the entire range. From the smallest wine to the grand cru of Chambertin, everything here transpires intelligence and the most exact formulation.
