Located at Morey-St-Denis, Domaine Taupenot-Merme was founded in 1963 after the marriage of Denise Merme and Jean Taupenot but it has a history going back seven generations. The domaine currently owns around 13 hectares of vineyard, spread across 19 different appellations in both the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits. The domaine makes wine from several grand and premier cru vineyards, including Charmes-Chambertin and Mazoyères-Chambertin, and the La Riotte Premier Cru in Morey-Saint-Denis. They also own a small portion of the Clos des Lambrays vineyard, which is otherwise owned by the Domaine des Lambrays. Their style of wines focuses on elegance and purity. They can be firm in their youth, with good tannic support, yet age gracefully as the tannins round and the sweet core of the fruit emerges.
The domaine is now run by brother-and-sister Romain and Virginie Taupenot and has turned to organic farming since 2001. The domaine has seen impressive improvements over the years, even Neal Martin has praised the domaine saying that this is “a domaine that has improved immensely in recent vintages, armed with an impressive array of holdings and fashioning classic, restrained Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs.” Today we are pleased to offer a small parcel of their Morey-Saint-Denis Rouge from 2014 is now in its prime to enjoy and will be a great start to explore their style if you have not yet experienced them just yet -

94pts Decanter The charming Romain Taupenot represents the family’s seventh generation here, and he is a strong advocate of allowing terroir to shine through. Owning premier cru and villages level wines from Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle and Gevrey, this is a serious estate – and this Morey is sleek, spicy and fresh, supported by a mineral streak on the finish. The 20% new oak is beautifully integrated. 90pts Wine Spectator The tart cherry and currant flavors are juicy and vibrant, with vegetal hints. In the end, this red tips toward the acidity. Crisp finish. Best from 2020 through 2032. Subject to final confirmation.
