Domaine Rossignol Trapet is a family owned winery in Gevrey Chambertin in the Côte de Nuits in Cote d'Or in Burgundy. It is run by David, Florence and Nicolas Rossignol-Trapet (Nicolas and Florence being married). They have been running the estate since the early 1990s when the two brothers took over from their parents.
Domaine Rossignol-Trapet owns vineyards in Gevrey-Chambertin and also in the communes (villages) of Beaune and Savigny-les-Beaune. The vineyards are farmed organically since many years and in the early 2000s they started to experiment with biodynamic farming. Since 2004 they work entirely biodynamic and have also the "agriculture biologique" organic label since 2007 as well as Demeter for biodynamic.
Rossignol Trapet mainly produces red wine, like most producers in Cote de Nuits, the northern part of the heart of Burgundy. The red wines are exclusively made from pinot noir grapes. They make a small quantity of white wines from chardonnay. They harvest all their vineyards by hand in small cagette cases. Grapes are sorted on a sorting table. Depending on the year they destem totally or keep some of the grape stems in the fermentation / vinification.
The wines are then aged in their underground vaulted cellar in Gevrey (as many cellars in Bourgogne) in oak barrels. Some of the wood is new. The aging in wood extends to between 14 and 18 months.
Their range of wines go from a "simple" Bourgogne Blanc or Rouge, over village appellations (Savigny, Beaune, Gevrey), premier crus (five different), and to grand crus (Chapelle, latricieres, and Le Chambertin).
