Alsace does not allow village denominations on its labels since most growers farm 6 or more varietals in multiple villages. Given that a complete cellar tasting of one vintage can easily run up to 30+ wines as it is, one can only imagine the level of complexity that would result from including the villages.
However, given that Trapet brings a Burgundian perspective to the wines of Alsace, it is only normal that they would find creative ways to identify the village for non-vineyard specific wines.
Vinified off-dry from the terroirs of Ritterpfad in Zellenberg and Grand Cru Sonnenglanz in Beblenheim, this wine goes remarkably well with spicy cuisine, cheese and foie gras. Aromatic notes of nutmeg, allspice, chestnuts & candied orange are melded with exotic tinges and fresh acidity.
