The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin "Capita" debuted in 2003 and contains 100% whole bunch fruit. It has a tightly wound, quite floral bouquet with more red fruit than the "Ostrea", hints of raspberry preserve and wild strawberry joining the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, taut and linear, a dash of white pepper cropping up towards the tightly wound finish that suggests cellaring for up to five years will be in order. 2022 - 2034
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Capita is a blend of fruit from the premiers crus En Ergot, Corbeaux and Combottes, supplemented—if I understood Jean-Louis Trapet correctly—by a visual selection of small-berried clusters from Petite Chapelle and Clos Prieur which are not destemmed. The wine offers up attractive notes of red and black cherries, raw cocoa, espresso roast and cedary new wood, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample palate with bright acids and fine-grained tannins.
