Vintage 2012

2012 was beset by unusual weather that didn’t spare the vines! A mild winter, spring-like March, cool spring with frosts, summer-like May, cooler, wetter June, a variable summer with heatwaves, hail and storms… Because of the cold damp spring, some of the vine flowers didn’t set and form fruit, there was millerandage (where the flowers aren’t fully fertilised and give small berries) and high pressure from mildew and odium. Temperatures went right up during the short periods, over-heating and scorching the berries. This weather caused a significant fall in yields, without, however, impacting on the quality of the grapes, as well spread out bunches with small berries guarantee concentration and intensity.
All in all, the grapes achieved good ripeness in aromas and good sugar to acidity balance. The white wines are characterised by their finesse and concentration. The reds set themselves apart with their lovely colours, ripe and silky tannins and their harmonious mouthfeel

Written Notes

Moderately saturated medium red. Aromas of wild dark berries, black cherry, menthol and flinty minerals. Almost shockingly sweet on entry, then pure, intense and delineated in the middle palate, even a bit imploded today, showing a near-perfect balance of sweetness, acidity and minerality. As much black as red fruit in character, with a hint of bitter chocolate carrying through from entry to aftertaste. Has the pH of a fully ripe year, but finishes juicy, vibrant and very long, with a powerful spine of refined tannins and terrific grip without hardness. This still needs more time in bottle to blossom and expand. The yield here was just 26 hectoliters per hectare and it shows. (As further evidence of the consistently high quality of Trapet's Chambertin in recent years, my final in-the-bottle scores of the '13, '14 and '15 on Vinous were 91+, 94+ and 96, respectively.) (12.9% alcohol; 3.52 pH; 3.9 grams per liter total acidity expressed as sulfuric; harvested on September 23 "under a radiant sky," according to Trapet; vinified with about 50% whole clusters)
