Information
 


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. The wines of Trapet-Alsace are characterized by superb purity of fruits, mineral and high density - and all these elements are wrapped by delicacy and softness.

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.



Sonnenglanz Grand Cru Gewürztraminer

Just outside the village,to the northwest, on the very edge of the foothills, the Sonnenglanz vineyard faces southeast, at an altitude of 220 to 270 metres. it enjoys a very favourable microclimate with particularly low rainfall (hardly more than 500 mm per year). its soil is rather homogeneous, the subsoil being only made up of tertiary border conglomerate of the Rhinegraben limestone pebbles and interlayered marls of eo-oligocene age develop a rather heavy, well structured and very stony calcareous soil.

Its 32.80 ha are planted principally with Pinot Gris and Gewurztraminer. Having gained a considerable reputation during the last century, the Sonnenglanz is noted for the quality of its wines.

The quality of the soil and its marvellous exposure give the wines an attractive gold colour of great intensity. on the nose, they have a fine, concentrated aroma of ripe fruit. they are generous on the palate, well balanced, with a long finish. This vintage 2011 is sweet.
