BURGUNDY 2016: Taupenot-Merme

Domaine Taupenot-Merme.jpg
Romaine Taupenot is one of the rising stars of the region, now responsible for the family holdings in Gevrey Chambertin and Morey St Denis.  Romain's aim is for the wines to express their terroir rather than a house style.  His decision to bottles his two Grands Crus, Charmes & Mazoyeres Chambertin separately was a good one, as he is now considered one of the key producers of the latter cru.  The Gevrey 1er Cru Bel Air is a wine to take note of, from 45 year old vines that sit directly above Chambertin Clos de Beze on on the same limestone soils as Clos de Ruchottes.
"Romain Taupenot has been behind the ascent of Taupenot-Merme in recent years. It is almost as if fashion has caught up with them, traditionally furrowing their own path of slightly leaner, terroir-driven wines that were as much about texture as fruit, now many growers have changed back more to this style. Meanwhile, I think Romain has refined the quality here in recent years… Taupenot-Merme remains one of the best producers based in Morey-Saint-Denis. If there is one wine that attests to that, it is their splendid Morey-Saint-Denis Village, everything you could want from a village cru, and a bit more"
