In contrast to the freakishly ripe Petite Chapelle, the 2015 Clos Prieur from Domaine Trapet is one classic customer, coming in at 13.2 percent octane and offering up superb purity on both the nose and palate. The bouquet is young and classic, wafting from the glass in a blend of black cherries, cassis, black minerality, venison, woodsmoke, espresso and just a touch of new wood. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows off outstanding mid-palate depth, with a very transparent profile, fine-grained tannins and a long, perfectly focused and tangy finish. Utterly classic in style and exceptional in quality. Just add bottle age! 2025-2065.
The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Clos-Prieur offers a mixture of red and black fruit on the nose, here, an enticing marine element surfacing, traces of seaweed (kelp) coming through with time. The palate is very well balanced with filigree tannin. The fruit profile starts red, but veers towards black as it fans out on the finish, while all the time maintaining fine mineral tension. This is another really quite gorgeous 2015 from Trapet. It comes highly recommended.(NM)
Bright medium red. Deep, musky scents of strawberry, redcurrant, leather and game. Fat and sweet in the mouth, offering serious volume to its red and darker fruit and smoky meat flavors. Finishes with big, dusty tannins but firm mineral support gives this premier cru a light touch for such a palate-saturating wine.(ST)
Here the expressive and almost as elegant nose derives primarily from the red side of the fruit spectrum while adding plenty of earth influence to the floral and spice hints. There is a highly seductive mouthfeel to the generously proportioned if slightly less refined medium-bodied flavors that offer both good richness and complexity on the beautifully persistent finish that is equally well-structured. This beauty should drink reasonably well early on. 2027+
