2018 Domaine Trapet Père & Fils Gevrey-Chambertin "Ostrea" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1537842 92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin "Ostrea" comprises around 70% whole cluster this year and comes from parcels around the village of Brochon. This has an elegant bouquet of gorgeous wild strawberry and raspberry preserve aromas, the oak seamlessly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and well-judged acidity, and so juicy that it is nigh impossible to detect the stem addition. This might well constitute the best "Ostrea" I have tasted from Trapet. (NM) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Ostrea is showing beautifully, unwinding in the glass with a deeper-pitched bouquet of cassis, dark berry fruit, baking chocolate, rich soil tones and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and mineral, this has a more structured, tensile profile than the domaine's regular Gevrey, as well as greater reserves of tightly wound fruit. As readers will remember, this cuvée derives from old vines in the commune of Brochon. The 2018 vintage has turned out brilliantly at this Gevrey-Chambertin benchmark, an estate that seems to go from strength to strength. Jean-Louis Trapet began picking on September 5 and retained a considerable proportion of whole clusters for vinification, reporting alcohol levels for the most part between 13% and 13.5%. Yields, he told me, were limited by the domaine's high percentage of old vines. Deep, concentrated and exquisitely elegant, this is a remarkably consistent range in both style and quality, and while they bear the imprint of the vintage, they're not dominated by it. Everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended. (WK) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

91 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2018 Ostrea is also a fine villages in the making. The wine is a touch more black fruity than the straight Gevrey, but still retains a nice mix of red fruit as well in its bouquet of red and black cherries, plums, meaty tones, an excellent base of soil tones, gentle spices, woodsmoke and cedar. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and quite soil-driven in personality, with an excellent core of fruit, suave tannins and impressive length and grip on the nascently complex finish. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Once again there is a subtle but not invisible dollop of wood suffusing the notably floral-inflected aromas of earth, forest floor and various dark berries. There is outstanding volume and mid-palate density to the opulent yet impressively well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that pack very good power and punch on the long, complex and balanced finale. *Outstanding!* Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

90-92 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Older vines, deeper purple, rather more new oak. Only 25% new though, showing a lot from this sample. Sweet pure raspberry fruit, this has what it takes. Excellent aftertaste once again." (01/2020)
