The idea for this wine came from a simple observation, freely inspired by Mr. Jules Chauvet 1960: “Adding sulphites to the harvest is not advisable, knowing that both the yeast and intracellular fermentations give the best yield when there is no SO2″. Once the grapes are in the vat, Trapet uses no sulphur and the fermentations start naturally. Assembrage : Sylvaner, Pinot Auxerrois, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, Pinot Gris, Riesling. Sporen wines are characterised by their finesse and class, richness allied to elegance. they age remarkably well. Deep soils protect against drought in years of low rainfall, allowing the vine roots to explore the soil and extract all the trace elements which contribute to the complexity of its wines. Just outside the village of Beblenheim, the Sonnenglanz vineyard faces southeast, at an altitude of 220 to 270 metres.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.

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. Wines age particularly well, and in time develop powerful, rich aromas. Its microclimate makes it admirably suited to the production of prestigious VT and SGN. This 2012 is dry type. The clayey coarse sand is mineral rich : Ca, Na, K, Mg, F, P, and determines the finesse and multiplicity of aromas in the wines. Schlossberg wines are characterised by their very fine, richly floral bouquet. Delicate and distinguished, they do not attain their plenitude until after several years in bottle of its wines. From two parcels - Burgraben and Hagenschlauf in Beblenheim, these chalky soils give young Rieslings their pretty floral lemony notes. With age, the mineral content is enhanced and the wine acquires a smooth sweet note. It goes remarkably well with slender fish, seafood and the delicious coq au Riesling.

Domaine Trapet in Alsace?

You can't reinvent your identity

When Burgundy grape grower meets Alsatian grape grower, an only daughter with a profound affection for her local soil, they feel a primitive, uncontainable duty to draw attention to the vines that tell the secrets of their native soil, a duty that ultimately becomes a passion.

Men come and go, the soil remains, we are merely passing…

We originally felt this urge out of duty and respect for generations of Alsatian grape growers before us (Jean-Pierre and Hélène Grayer, our Great grandparents Pontius). Duty then turned into passion, a passion for the vines of Alsace, and we became determined to make them the closest possible reflection of their homeland.

Finally, it became a pleasure, a pleasure to work with a soil so rich in history and culture, a soil so rich in meaning and emotion, a soil with a strong, steadfast personality, and our ambition for Alsace wines to be signed by Trapet was born.(Andrée Trapet)

L’éloge de la douceur

Wine is one of the most civilized things in existence. In my capacity as a wine grower, the path of gentleness and respect enables me to make my way towards the highest degree of expression of my soils. This gentleness, chosen with due consideration, often follows the paths of tradition.

It travels across the vineyard. From the first buds to harvesting, the grape is accompanied but never forced. It passes through the fermentation room where the bunches of grapes are meticulously sorted and delicately pressed.

It follows its course through the cellar where the wine gently oozes out in all solemnity. It finally slips into its bottle to set free in their entirety, some years later, its flavours and delicate, elegant and harmonious fragrances.

In short, the prospects that gentleness offers to the wine grower who knows how to follow them through are rich. Rich, too, are the heady perspectives for the amateur who knows how to taste them. (Jean-Louis Trapet)
