Rapet 2022

Rapet 2022

Today we have a very small amount of one of the very best Corton-Charlemagne, from Vincent Rapet, as well as a few more cases of his wines…this is a domaine which really hits the spot in both colours.

This is one of the rising stars of Burgundy and getting very difficult to source. Please balance requests for Grand Cru with other wines.

“This historic family estate was created in 1765. Vincent, who is in charge today, produces modern style wines, well vinified and representative of their terroir.

Some years of cellaring become them well and the prices of the different cuvées remain very reasonable. So in short, we are talking about a reliable address for red as well as white wines…”

La Revue du vin de France

Domaine Rapet Père et Fils

The Rapet family have been farming vineyards in and around Pernand-Vergelesses for many generations. Today Vincent and his son, Robin, run the 20-hectare domaine together with great vigour and enthusiasm. They have some really excellent plots plus a great big parcel of Corton-Charlemagne. Stylistically, the wines are understated and only lightly extracted, with very gentle use of new oak. Most of the reds have some whole-bunch but, again, it’s judiciously used.

Robin and Vincent began harvesting the reds on the 28th August and the whites on 2nd September. Aside from the Bourgogne, most of the reds had about 40% whole bunch. The whites are saline, vibrant and expressive, whilst the reds are red fruited and very pretty.

“The Rapet family can trace its roots in Pernand back to 1795, and they are both one of the largest landholders in Corton-Charlemagne as well as one of its finest exponents, so it is a mystery why these wines aren’t better known and better distributed.” – William Kelley

90% is from the Pernand side, a third old vines, a third 20 year old, a third 35 year old. And guess what, the youngest are in the worst condition. Some tressed, some worked by winch. Pale colour, a beautifully mineral nose, properly shows its terroir. The wine picks up speed further back on the palate, opening out very nicely. Very attractive.

The vines mostly date back to 1962/3. A little more colour to this and summer flowers on the nose. Quite tight on the palate, with its usual salty touch, middleweight, yet with notable length. Drink from 2027-2032. 89-92 Points, 4 Stars, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy [01/12/2023]

The lower part planted in 1986 is doing fine on SO4 rootstock, but the upper part on 161/49 needs to come out. The holding is at the Pernand end of the vineyard which is more suited to white. More lemon than lime in the colour. Pure white fruit on the nose, less floral than Le Clos. A fine steely backbone with good flesh on the bones. Very sound.

Made from 35-40 year-old vines at the top of the slope. Pretty purple, slightly lighter. The bouquet is discreet though suggests some class, and interesting red berry fruit on the palate with a peppery, spicy note mixed in. Quite a subtle, complex wine that needs a little teasing out. A fine-boned finish. Drink from 2029-2035. 90-93 Points, 4 Stars, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy [01/12/2023]
