Domaine Trapet | Alsace
Andrée and Jean Louis Trapet of Gevrey Chambertin renown, took over Andrée’s parents vineyards in Alsace in 2002, inheriting generations of knowledge of the terroir and the style of wines. An only daughter with a profound affection for her local soil, she converted the domaine to biodynamic methods, adopting the same disciplines as they exercise in Burgundy. The estate comprises some of the best Grand crus vineyards in Alsace and the wines, like their Burgundy relatives, are all about finesse and elegance. They are characterised by an almost electric purity and minerality and are superbly versatile with challenging dishes.
