2019 Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Rossignol-Trapet

2019 Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Rossignol-Trapet

Rossignol-Trapet owns a very fine two parcels of this formidable grand cru. The vines were mostly planted in the 1950s, with a small section of young vines planted in 2000, and another small section planted way back in 1919. It has magnificent structure, with a voluminous length. It remains subtle and restrained on the nose, but builds in power, and has a persistent finish of dark fruits and mineral spice.

Tasting notes

The 2019 Chambertin Grand Cru vies with the Chapelle-Chambertin for "best bouquet in show," presenting a beautifully defined mixture of red and black fruit and touches of sous-bois and crushed iris petals. It seems to expand with aeration. The lightly spiced palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity, leading to a persistent finish. This is a fine Chambertin, although if you invited me out to dinner, I’d ask for the divine Chapelle-Chambertin.
