An enthusiastic biodynamist Jean-Louis is well-known as top Burgundy wine producer based in Gevrey-Chambertin. Besides, Jean-Louis and his wife Andrée own the vineyards in Alsace.

Trapet is a member of Renaissance des Appellations(organized by Nicolas Joly, the group of natural wines. Members are required strict observance of high level of the charter of quality). Whole process - from the vineyard to cellar works - is fully managed by natural method.



Schoenenbourg Grand Cru Riesling

Situated to the north of Riquewihr, the vineyard runs along the rather steep south and south-east flanks of the Schoenenbourg hillside, at an altitude of 265 to 380 metres.

It covers an area of 53.40 ha, over a water-retaining subsoil of Keuper, marl, dolomite and gypsum, rich in fertilising agents, overlaid with fine layers of quaternary siliceous gravel, Vosges sandstone and Muschelkalk, with at its eastern extremity outcropsof Lias marl limestones. On the Schoenenbourg, Riesling is King. Muscat and Pinot Gris also prosper admirably.

Renowned ever since the early Middle Ages, the wines of the Schoenenbourg were famous throughout northern Europe in the 16th century. The great Swiss cartographer, Merian, cited in 1663 "The Schoenenbourg, which produces the most noble wine of this country". Voltaire owned several vineyards here.

Schoenenbourg Grand Cru wines age particularly well, and in time develop powerful, rich aromas. Its microclimate makes it admirably suited to the production of prestigious Vendanges Tardives and Sélections de Grains Nobles, late-harvest wines. This 2012 Shoenenbourg is dry type.
