Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru "Petite Chapelle" 2008, Domaine Trapet

This 1er Cru lieu dit is down the slope from Chapelle-Chambertin. Another clarification of the exciting and perplexing 2008 vintage characteristics. Spice, white pepper, cherry, there is decent fruit here with strawberry dominant. Rounded, good fruit length mixing red currant and rhubarb with a stitching of orange. Savoury finish. Definitely a food wine. The overly-bright flavours will not please anyone who is a fan of Bordeaux wines.
