Domaine Rapet is a family estate that has a long history dating back to 1765 and is located in the village of Pernand-Vergelesses. They currently own 20 hectares of vineyards based around the villages of Pernand-Verglesesses, Savigny Les Beaune, Aloxe-Corton and Beaune, and which includes the renowned white Grand Cru, the Corton-Charlemagne. The house is managed by Vincent Rapet and his wife, Sylvette nowadays.
The wines from Domaine Rapet are well-defined with terroir characters and have great individuality. Their holdings of Corton-Charlemagne lie majorly in En Charlemagne and the northern part of Le Charlemagne, with the oldest vines being more than 50 years old and with some younger vines planted to allow better combination of structure and power of the fruits from the old vines with the freshness and finesse from the young vines. It is a fantastic quality Corton-Charlemagne that we urge to pick up year after year.

Domaine Rapet Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2018
HK$790 per bottle

94pts Wine Advocate
Rapet's 2018 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru opens in the glass with aromas of pear, citrus oil, white flowers, hazelnuts and wheat toast. On the palate, it's full-bodied, satiny and textural, with real depth and concentration, its rich and fleshy core of fruit structured around ripe acids and chalky dry extract. In a more gourmand, exotic register, this has turned out very well.
Subject to final confirmation. ETA 4-5 weeks.
