A blend of historic sites including Deree, Champerrier (planted in 1919), Petite Jouise and Clos de Combe.
The vineyard is farmed using biodynamic practices and all grapes are harvested by hand, sorted once in the vineyard and again at the winery. Up to 10% of the crop may be rejected.
Vinification with traditional methods, open vat fermentation using native yeasts, 30% stem inclusion and minimal use of sulpher.
The wine is aged in French barriques of which 30-75% is new depending on vintage.
While reduction flattens the underlying fruit there is by contrast good freshness to the complex and lightly mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that are underpinned by ripe and firm tannins on the balanced, saline and lingering finish. This should age well yet be approachable after only 4 to 5 years of bottle age.
Gevrey AC from Domaine Trapet is extremely lovely for a village wine. The purity and transparency of the vintage are very much in evidence in this fine bottle, as the wine delivers a bouquet of black cherries, plums, dark soil tones, gamebirds, cocoa and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very soil-driven in personality, with lovely mid-palate depth, fine-grained tannins and a long, tangy and youthfully complex finish. This is a very, very elegant Gevrey villages this year! 2019-2045.
