En Primeur | Domaine Rapet

Domaine Rapet, founded in 1765, boasts 20 hectares of some of the finest vineyards in the northern end of the Côte de Beaune. They have 21 different cuvées from 5 different villages around the town of Beaune, including an enviable two-hectare parcel of Grand Cru Corton Charlemagne. The current incumbent Vincent assumed responsibility for the domaine in 1985 at just 21, so with 35 vintages under his belt, he is very much a senior statesman in the village of Pernand Vergelesses.

    Bright red cherry colour, this has a sweetness of red fruits, raspberry and strawberry. Tremendous perfume, all about elegance, this will give early drinking pleasure. The tannins have a lightness of touch giving the wine an easy approachability.

  • Jasper Morris MW, December 2022, Score: 88-90

    Old vines. Very similar colour. The bouquet is a little sturdier than the Clos du Roi, and there are peppery notes at the finish. Solid and sound but I find the Clos du Roi more charming. Drink from 2025-2030.

    The Rapet Corton comes from Pinot Noir in two different parcels on the Aloxe Corton side of the hill. The vines here are planted on red iron soil providing substance and backbone to the naturally harmonious style of wine for which Vincent strives. Brick red colour, this is darker fruit in nature, with characters of Morello cherry and cassis. It has a sensual sweetness, with a firm gritty tannic core.
