More wood than is typical for Trapet is present on the lightly herbal tea-inflected aromas of red and dark cherry, earth and a hint of humus. The nicely vibrant medium weight flavors possess a sleek mouthfeel and reasonably good concentration before culminating in a noticeably warm if delicious finish. Not surprisingly, this will need a few years to develop better depth but it's not so structured as to be unapproachable young. Drink: 2025+
The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin Clos Prieur 1er Cru offers rather showy red fruit with veins of blueberry, quite precocious and maybe not as complex as say, the domaine’s Corbeaux by direct comparison. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, smooth in texture although, I would like more delineation and a tad more persistency to develop on the finish during the remainder of its élevage. I will remain prudent with my score for now. 2020 - 2030
Aromas of dark chocolate, grilled meats and licorice mingle with rich cassis and dark berry fruit in a complex bouquet, introducing Trapet's 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos Prieur, a medium to full-bodied, layered and fleshy wine with a generous, textural profile and fine but chalky structuring tannins. It's one of the more gourmand wines in the cellar this year.
