Domaine Trapet Père et Fils, Gevrey-Chambertin Ostrea 2016

Classic Wine Imports, Boston MA.

From vines as old as ninety from the Brouchon side, including En Derey, Champerriers, Le Clos.  From fossil rich limestone, or ostrea accuminata.

Ruby.  Evocative for such a young wine.  My vision was of my grandfather, who spent his life working outside, and when he comes inside for lunch he’s thick with the smells of earth and smoke.  More gourmand than sweet, and those oyster shells in the subsoil act like an iridescent wire, firming the core of this wine’s fruitNow – 2030+.
