The 2015 Chambertin from Domaine Trapet is utterly brilliant, as it is a big, massive and utterly poised and refined example of the vintage. The heroically proportioned wine is still the essence of Chambertin, as it delivers a brilliant bouquet of black plums, red and black cherries, raw cocoa, grilled meats, a very complex base of soil tones, a touch of graphite and a refined framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and simply bottomless at the core, with a great synthesis of soil signature and sappy, pure fruit. The finish is endless, with fine-grained tannins, lovely acids and stunning complexity. This is one of the wines of the vintage in 2015, without a doubt! 2030-2100.
The 2015 Chambertin Grand Cru has a beautifully composed, almost nonchalant bouquet with intense blackberry and wild strawberry fruit infused with superb mineral tension. You can feel the terroir here tingling on the tongue. The palate is wonderfully balanced with a sorbet-like freshness. This almost leaps around the mouth, barely able to contain its energy and there is bewitching salinity on the persistence finish. Frankly, it is one of the best Chambertin wines produced in 2015.

(90% vendange entier; 60% new oak): Deep, bright red. Pure but subdued aromas of plum, redcurrant, meat, soil and minerals. Delivers an extraordinary combination of silkiness and precision, with the utterly seamless flavors delivering terrific sappy mineral grip. This wonderfully spherical Chambertin is balanced from day one but has the acid cut and tannic spine for a long and spectacular evolution in bottle. (ST)
Interestingly this is aromatically quite similar to the nose of the Latricières though there is just a bit more wood in evidence. By contrast there is more size, weight, power and muscle to the big-bodied and equally mineral-driven flavors that also brim with copious amounts of dry extract that coats the palate and buffers the even firmer tannic backbone on the driving, hugely long and youthfully austere finale. This is an exquisitely poised Chambertin that is very much built-to-age and is going to need a minimum of 10 years and once again, is a wine that should last for decades. In a word, brilliant.
