Lot #38. Jean & Jean-Louis Trapet Chambertin 2011

Description: Consists of 3 Magnums, 1.5L
Score: 96 JG.
"The 2011 Trapet Chambertin is absolutely magical and one of the best 2011s that I tasted on this trip. The classic and youthful nose offers up scents of red and black cherries, black minerality, plummy overtones, raw cocoa, mustard seed, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and youthfully structured, with the purity of the vintage very much in evidence, a great core, ripe, firm tannins and superb focus and grip on the very, very long and soil-driven finish. This is the most aromatically expressive of the three grand crus here today, but also more shut down on the attack and reserved. However, the backend purity and energy are enormous and this will clearly be a brilliant wine in the fullness of time." John Gilman, View From the Cellar, May/Jun 2013, Issue #45
