Wine Critics Notes:

Allen Meadows - Score: 94 (2014 Jan.)

A discreet touch of wood sets off equally cool, ultra-pure and restrained aromas of dark berries, earth, wet stone and a gorgeous panoply of floral elements. There is superb intensity to the powerful and tautly muscular large-scaled flavors that exude a very fine minerality on the overtly austere, serious and strikingly long finish that delivers a whole other dimension of complexity. As Chambertin goes, this is not an especially big or brawny wine and while the word finesse is not really apt in this case, it is more refined than usual.

Vinous - Score: 95 (2014 Mar.)

A huge wine for the year, Trapet's 2011 Chambertin graces the palate with dark blue/purplish fruit, violets, cloves and savory herbs. Even with all of its intensity, the 2011 is a deceptively mid-weight Chambertin with fabulous balance and class. It should drink well relatively early.
