"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."
Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate - december 2015

Mørk og dyster, mere grandeur og generalkommandant. Robust, stovt, fast og koncentreret. Lakrids, trækul, vermouth. Fadet er overraskende mere tydeligt end på Latricières. Smagen er viskøs, smertende intens, mere tannisk end Latricières og specielt strukturen bliver hængende. Og fordi den del er så markant, glemmer jeg helt at bemærke frugten, som stadig hænger på efter et minut. Kæmpevin.
The 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru matures in 50% new oak. It has an exuberant vivacious bouquet with wild strawberry, Morello cherries and crushed stone, becoming increasingly floral with aeration. There is real intensity and perhaps more brightness compared to its "Latricières" and "Chapelle" siblings. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, a fine bead of acidity, quite animated and tensile with a very pure and caressing finish that might be more unstated than its peers, but feels just as persistent and engaging. And the good news? This year there are twenty barrels instead of just five last year. - Neal Martin
The 2015 Chambertin Grand Cru has a beautifully defined bouquet with fine mineralité and real transparency, frankly operating at a higher level than the Latricières or Chapelle-Chambertin. The palate is crisp on the entry with fine tannin, shimmering red berry fruit laced with minerals and impressive precision on the finish. This is brimming over with energy and somewhat predictably is the pick from Rossignol-Trapet this year. - Neal Martin
Mid crimson. Fragrant with dark-red fruit. Finely perfumed. Then a little abrupt and closed on the palate, needing a good bit more time than the Chapelle-Chambertin, I think. Compact tannins, dry, almost austere but balanced - just embryonic. - Julia Harding
Good dark red. Mellow aromas of plum, redcurrant, flowers, mocha, coffee and spicy oak. The most complete of these 2014s; rich, round and silky but with a firm spine of stony minerality. Savory and juicy in the mid-palate, conveying lovely mineral energy to the pure flavors of dark raspberry and flowers. Finishes firmly tannic but not dry. - Stephen Tanzer
The 2014 Chambertin Grand Cru has a noticeably deep color. The nose is very well defined, the 50% whole bunch fruit absorbed by the black fruit, fresh and tensile with very attractive cold limestone scents coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very harmonious and composed; the finish is controlled and quite linear at the moment with citrus-fresh red berry fruit lingering on the aftertaste. Excellent. - Neal Martin
