Domaine Rossignol Trapet Gevrey Chambertin Petite Chapelle Pinot Noir Wine 2012

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Strong reduction. There is a fine sense of verve freshness and intensity to the even more obviously mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors that possess the best depth and length of any of these Gevrey 1ers. Despite the younger vines there is very good mid-palate concentration and phenolic maturity to the structural elements and this should amply reward mid to longer-term cellaring. 2024+ Burghound.

While the 2012 Clos Prieur was a bit reduced the Petite Chapelle was hitting on all cylinders and it was simply a pleasure to taste such a great young bottle of Gevrey premier cru. The deep pure and still quite primary nose offers up a beautiful blend of red and black cherries plums cocoa powder a very very complex base of soil tones fresh nutmeg woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep full-bodied and very pure on the attack with a great sappy core of fruit go

The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Petite Chapelle does not undergo any pigeage so that Arnaud can maintain the freshness of its clay soils. It has a perfumed floral bouquet with raspberry preserve fresh strawberries and minerals that are well defined a touch of burnt toast emerging with aeration. The palate is firm in the mouth more reserved and austere but with a lovely composed stony finish that is very precise. This is Rossignol-Trapet

As it often is this is the most elegant of these 1ers with a well-layered and attractively fresh combination of red and blue pinot fruit plum violet and wet stone nuances. The rich intense and beautifully precise medium weight flavors terminate in a dusty firm and slightly tangy finish that I suspect is exacerbated due to the presence of quite a bit of gas. My score assumes that this will come together once it is in bottle though note that it will require 12 to 15 years as this is very firm. Burghound.
