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.
