The 2013 Chapelle-Chambertin from Domaine Rossignol-Trapet is another stellar wine in the making. The excellent nose delivers a youthful blend of black cherries, black plums, dark berries, cocoa, beautifully complex soil tones, gamebirds and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and very transparent, with a sappy core of fruit, fine-grained tannins and a very, very long, perfectly balanced and still youthfully reserved finish. This too is very reminiscent of top Gevrey grand crus in the 1993 vintage. (Drink between 2023-2075) (12/2014)

Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru has a refined, elegant bouquet with clean and very pure fruit, wonderful use of new oak, feminine and sensual. The palate is medium-bodied with filigree tannin, perfect acidity, light on its toes yet with great complexity and depth on the finish. This is a very classy and sophisticated wine that should age in consummate style. Tasted September 2016. NM (11/2016)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

A wonderfully fresh nose is more restrained than that the Latricières with an even earthier array of deeply pitched black currant, plum and violent scented aromas that are again trimmed in gentle wood nuances. The overtly muscular and attractively stony big-bodied flavors possess solid mid-palate concentration that does a fine job of buffering the firm supporting tannins on the moderately austere, persistent and slightly better balanced finish. This backward effort will likely need 12 to 15 years to reveal its full potential. (1/2016)
