Gevrey-Chambertin Domaine Taupenot-Merme 2016/17
Domaine Taupenot-Merme, Morey St Denis
Seventh-generation Romain Taupenot is in charge of winemaking at Domaine Taupenot-Merme, aided by his sister Virginie. It's widely and correctly acknowledged that the estate, which has been working along organic principles since 2001.
Black cherry, plum, red currant, earth and subtle sauvage nuances. The medium-bodied flavors also possess a caressing mouthfeel though here there is evident minerality along with a touch of youthful austere on the slightly more structured finale. This too is really quite good for its level and is also worth a look. Outstanding!
Grape; Pinot Noir
