Vineyard: Gamay and Pinot Noir planted in the Gevrey parcel known as Grand Champs, located near the border of the village.
Viticulture: Biodynamically farmed, fruit is hand-harvested.
Vinification: Vinified in tank, zero sulfur additions, wild yeast fermentation.
Production: Very limited
Notes: This wine, A Minima, represents Trapet's philosophy of minimal handling and minimal sulpher additions...letting nature do the talking, if you will. This is as delicious as Passetoutgrains gets folks!
Incidentally, Trapet's entry-level Bourgogne Passetoutgrain à Minima, a 50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay from a 1965 planting just outside the Gevrey appellation, offers intriguing elements of red fruits and dried flowers and a lovely balance of sweetness and acidity. It should be very easy to drink.
