Cellar for up to 15 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

Founded back in 1870, Domaine Trapet is currently run by Jean-Louis Trapet who looks after the family’s 12 hectares of vines which include 1.9 hectares of prized Chambertin Grand Cru vineyards. The domaine was one of the few in Burgundy to embrace the forbidden practice of grafting vines to protect against phylloxera in the 19th century. Thanks to this bold move, the domaine’s vineyards were saved and were later used to help replant the region.

Jean-Louis converted the domaine to biodynamic viticulture in the 1990s, achieving Biodivin certification in 1998 and Demeter in 2005. Wherever possible he adopts a light touch, moving the wine into the cellar via gravity and using no sulphur during harvesting or vinification except for a small amount at bottling.

Ostrea is a great example of the luscious and well-rounded Trapet house style. Fruit is sourced from four parcels spread over 2.5 hectares on soils rich in limestone and the fossilized oyster shells that give this wine its name. The oldest vines here were planted back in 1913, producing tiny berries packed with flavour. The young wine is aged mostly in used oak barrels, adding subtle smokey and spiced notes to the dense core of ripe red berries and hints of leafy undergrowth and tobacco leaf.
