Tasting Notes:

"This is aromatically quite similar to the Charmes though the earth and sauvage elements are a bit more pronounced. There is good punch and plenty of minerality to the broad-shouldered and powerful flavors that deliver first-rate depth and length on the moderately rustic and overtly austere finale. Once again patience will be required for this very serious effort to mature as the supporting tannins are prominent and notably firm." AM

Located in the village of Morey St Denis, Domaine Taupenot-Merme is now run by the 7th generation, Romain and Virginie Taupenot. The Domaine is spread quite widely throughout the Cote, boasting 13 hectares of vines over 20 appellations, striking a good balance between Grand Cru, Premiers Cru and Village wines. The wines produced by Taupenot-Merme in 2015 outperformed most of their peers at all quality levels.

All grapes are destemmed before spending 7 days in a cold soak with minimal pumpovers. Fermentation occurs naturally with indigenous yeasts before the grapes are pressed.

Ageing is between 12 to 14 months on fine lees and no racking, with Grand Cru wines seeing 40% new oak.
