About the wine




Wine type




Bottle size


A combined total of 6.25 hectares from vines with an average age of 50 years from three separate areas create this wine. To the east Croix de Champs lies on limestone soil; further to the north-east is Les Crais where the soil is gravel heavy and well drained; to the north and higher up the slope Combe du Dessus sits on a layer of clay. As a result the wine delivers strength, power and impressive acidity while retaining an element of finesse.

About the producer

The 14 hectare Domaine Rossignol-Trapet was created as recently as 1990 when the original Louis Trapet vineyard holdings were divided between his daughter and his son-in-law Jacques Rossignol. Since then Jacques’ two sons, Nicolas and David have gradually taken over the reins of the business. The domaine has been certified 100% biodynamic since 2004. With vineyards spread equally across Village, 1er Cru and Grand Cru holdings in Gevrey Chambertin, the domaine offers a fascinating insight into the sheer variety of flavours that this famous Burgundy village can muster. The brothers strive to allow their wines to reflect their very precise origins with clarity and elegance. They prefer to harvest later and use less new oak, as their aim is to achieve fruit ripeness rather than oak dominance. Typically, the ‘Village’ wine matures in 10-15% new oak, the 1er Crus 25% new oak and the Grands Crus 50% new oak. Purity of fruit and freshness are the hallmarks here.
