Taupenot-Merme Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d'Orveaux VV 1er Cru 2012 and 2014

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 their Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d'Orveaux Vieilles Vignes 1er Cru 2012 and 2014. "La Combe d'Orveau" is one of the hidden gems in Chambolle-Musigny that is often overlooked because people misunderstand that it is a village while this terroir is actually split into two major parcels - one which is located at the lower slope and is classified as 1er Cru and Grand Cru; while the other on the west side is classified as "village". There are only five owners on the 1er cru and grand cru section of La Combe d’Orveau today including Bruno Clavelier (which we offered over the weekend), Jacques Prieur, Perrot-Minot, Taupenot-Merme and Faiveley (in order of size of ownership). Now available to order, arriving in 4-6 weeks, don't miss the chance to secure these gems as there are very limited quantities -
