2016 Domaine Trapet Père et Fils Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1380475 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Latricières-Chambertin Grand Cru, which contains 40% whole bunch fruit like the Chapelle Chambertin, has those typical traits of correctness and strictness on the nose. The black fruit feels a bit aloof and distant, but that is what you expect—this is not a Charmes-Chambertin! The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red and black fruit tinged with fig, cinnamon and baking spices, lively and tensile with real frisson toward the finish. What an outstanding Latricières from Jean-Louis, yet another great success this vintage.

95 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark Though the Latricières was frosted in 2016, this wine was showing more precision and nuance at the present time in the Trapet cellars than the very good Chapelle-Chambertin. The bouquet here is outstanding, wafting from the glass in a complex blend of cassis, sweet dark berries, bitter chocolate, gamebird, dark soil tones, woodsmoke and a discreet base of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and very refined in profile, with a sappy core of black fruit, lovely backend mineral drive, ripe, suave tannins and a long, tangy and complex finish. Fine, fine juice. Inner quote mark (11/2017)

92-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This too is sufficiently reduced as to render the nose impossible to assess. Otherwise there is a significant difference in mouthfeel to the more tension-filled and delineation if less rich medium weight plus flavors that are also much more mineral-driven on the super-saline finish that is equally persistent if much more youthfully austere. While this is qualitatively similar to the Chapelle but it couldn't be more different intrinsically. Textbook Latricières. Inner quote mark (1/2018)

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good dark red. Much more sauvage on the nose than the Chapelle-Chambertin, showing a more brambly dark fruit character along with notes of licorice and leather. Then plush and gamey in the middle palate, with plum and currant fruit flavors enlivened by violet and mineral notes and given surprising definition by firm acidity. Firm and upright but not austere, with its solid tannins nicely supported by sweet purple fruits. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Biodynamic. Lightish crimson. Smells elegant with pretty red fruit and a light herbal/stemmy note adding freshness. Even a touch floral. Then a little more savoury on the palate but still so scented. Lovely, relatively delicate but wonderfully persistent and a touch of pepper on the finish. Glorious and very much 2016. Super-fine texture. It seems drinkable now but will surely be worth waiting for. (JH) 18/20 Inner quote mark (1/2018)

K&L Notes

97 points Tim Atkin (MW) :"Latricières position at the foot of the Combe Grisard means that its wines often show freshness and breeziness. That’s the case here in this fine, precise, focused red, showing floral aromas and flavours of pomegranate and orange zest. Nuanced, long and made to age, despite its lightness of touch." (1/2018) 92-94 points Jasper Morris (MW): "Rich purple. Dense dark rather sombre nose. Not the luminosity of their Chapelle-Chambertin. Perhaps this resembles more a Clos de la Roche, made from a broader cloth, with some tannins and the usual sense of freshness, but less charm." (1/2018)
