"Domaine Rossignol-Trapet is a producer that has improved dramatically in recent years and to be honest, that is all the more pleasing to see because Nicolas and David Rossignol are two of the nicest winemakers you can meet."

The 2016 Gevrey-Chambertin Petite Chapelle 1er Cru has a very muted nose that needs more lift of fruit. I find a slight metallic reduction here. The palate is better with supple tannin, well-judged acidity, plenty of freshness, and a pleasing mélange of red and black fruit. It shows fine harmony on the finish. Give it a couple of years for the aromatics to sort themselves out. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting. - Neal Martin
The 2015 Gevrey-Chamberitn 1er Cru Petite Chapelle has more clayey, colder soils than the domaines other crus that tends to keep the humidity, which of course was advantageous in a dry season like 2015. And the nose reflects that: plenty of vibrant red berry fruit here, hints of orange zest and cedar, very focused with good energy. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition: crisp and lively with crunchy raspberry and cranberry fruit, the tongue tingling with the energy locked in right on the finish. This is excellent. - Neal Martin
Lightish cherry red. Incredibly perfumed – so inviting. Fine red fruit, a touch of spice and vanilla, sailing out of the glass. Gentle and rounded on the palate, with light tannins well judged for the fruit depth. Dry, spicy finish. - Julia Harding MW
Good dark red. High-pitched, slightly high-toned aromas of raspberry, spices and mint show a slightly exotic character. Fresh, dry and classic in the mouth, offering good juicy, spicy intensity. This wine got only a single pigeage, noted Nicolas Rossignol, as it has a tendency to become overly tannic. A bit dusty on the back end but red licorice and floral notes give it personality and perfumed lift. - Stephen Tanzer
