Tasting Notes:

"The 2014 Mazoyères Chambertin Grand Cru has a glorious bouquet with red and black fruit, sous bois and pressed rose petal aromas that seem to flourish in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy red berry fruit laced with white pepper and orange peel. I appreciate the cohesion and length of this grand cru, one filled with panache to the last sip. This is a brilliant performance from Taupenot-Merme and it totally outclassed the Charmes-Chambertin tasted alongside." WA

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.
