Chambertin Grand Cru 2008, Domaine Trapet

This Chambertin 2008, tasted at the domaine, started on red cherry aromas entangled with honeysuckle. There is obvious sweetness in the mouth, blackberry, sharp acidity, lively tannins coated with a ripe red currant and raspberry cloak of fruit. There's loganberry ("mûroise") in the glass. This 2008 Chambertin grand cru is saline,"un vin digeste" with residual sweetness on the finish. Needs at least 10 years to evolve and give up its secrets. Anticipate will be very complex and intriguing. A real wine for connoisseurs. Could it be more obvious that this vineyard is horse-ploughed?
