    About Domaine Taupenot-Merme

    Domaine Taupenot-Merme is a dynamic, up-and-coming domaine based in Morey-Saint-Denis, with 13 hectares under vines in the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. It is run by the seventh generation Romain Taupenot alongside his sister, Virginie. Seventh-generation Romain Taupenot runs this domaine with his sister, Virginie.

     

    Viniculture

    The average age of the vines are over 50 years old and they follow lutte raisonnée or ‘the reasoned struggle’ principle in the vineyard, meaning chemicals are used only when they are absolutely needed, if ever. 

     

    The house style is generally focused on the great purity of fruit and intensity of aromatics in both their reds and whites. Generally known for producing wine from less-celebrated appellations, such as Auxey-Duresses and Saint-Romain, they champion these underrated wines with great style and class.

    2020

    Taupenot Merme Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru 2020 (6x75cl)

    Burghound (89-92)

    (from Les Duresses and Grands Champs). Slightly more elegant aromas include those of poached plum, cassis and newly turned earth. The seductive yet dense and powerful bigger-bodied flavors brim with dry extract that helps to buffer the firm tannic spine shaping the solidly persistent finale where the only nit is a hint of warmth. This moderately rustic effort should reward a decade of improvement and last for twice that. (89-92)/2028+

    Taupenot Merme Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru La Combe d'Orveau 2011 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (91)

    The 2011 Chambolle-Musigny 1er La Combe D’Orveau is raised in 35% new oak. It has a pinched bouquet that opens nicely in the glass and offers attractive fresh strawberry, jasmine and undergrowth scents. The palate is smooth and rounded on the entry. This is very nicely composed with fine tannins and well-integrated oak, building gently to a raspberry and wild strawberry finish. This is one of the domaine’s best 2011s. Drink 2014-2022.

    The 2020 Chambolle-Musigny Village, matured in around 25% new oak, has quite a perfumed bouquet with red cherries and rose petal scents, quite airy and nicely focused. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, slightly creamy in texture, gaining weight towards the finish that feels quite caressing.

    Taupenot Merme Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2012 (6x75cl)

    Tim Atkin (96)

    Romain Taupenot has not been afraid to make ageworthy wines in 2012, but they aren't overly tannic or woody, just structured and well balanced. This is a case in point: a subtly oaked Grand Cru with real drive and precision. The fruit is sweet and supple, but it's surrounded by fine-grained tannins and mineral freshness.

    Taupenot Merme Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2013 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (92-94)

    The 2013 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a gorgeous floral bouquet with ebullient red cherries and wild strawberry scents, a fine mineral core just underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, touches of orange rind and spice toward the finish that is linear and strict at the moment, but will open up once in bottle. Very fine.

    Taupenot Merme Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2015 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (93-95)

    The 2015 Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru has an expressive bouquet with redcurrant, raspberry coulis, a touch of honey and a hint of Seville orange marmalade. It opens nicely in the glass, though does not slip into fifth gear at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, cohesive in the mouth and quite saline and spicy. There is generosity here, a trait of Charmes-Chambertin, with the mineral core surfacing right at the finish as it fans out. This is an impressive follow-up to the superb 2014 and it should give 20+ years of pleasure.

    Taupenot Merme Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2019 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93-95)

    The 2019 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a straightforward, focused bouquet with brambly red fruit, briary and tea leaf aromas, though it just lacks the assertiveness and intensity you seek from a Grand Cru. The palate is better with a light spiced opening, good weight and cohesion with black pepper and sea salt infused red fruit. Quite Mazoyères in terms of structure towards the finish, this will benefit from 4-6 years in bottle.

    Vinous (93-95)

    The 2020 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru was very closed on the nose despite encouragement. This feels very introverted. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fine acidity, more expressive here in the mouth than on the nose with black pepper, bay leaf and clove towards the finish. Give this a few years in bottle and wait for the aromatics to blossom.

    Wine Advocate (91)

    The 2011 Corton Rognet Grand Cru has a more reticent nose with subtle marine scents emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins on the entry. This is a tertiary Corton with attractive damp earthy and moss accents that inform the composed understated finish. Drink now-2020.

    Vinous (93-95)

    The 2020 Corton-Rognet Grand Cru has a very well-delineated bouquet, very terroir-driven, crushed stone infusing the red fruit a touch of white pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fresh acidity, taut and crisp, gently building towards quite a complex finish with touches of Early Grey infusing the red fruit, cracked black pepper on the aftertaste. Excellent.

    Taupenot Merme Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Bel Air 2011 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (90)

    The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Bel-Air 1er Cru demonstrates more cohesion and harmony on the nose compared directly with the 2011 Les Pruliers, vibrant cranberry and raspberry preserve scents, a little smoke and graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, a gentle grip in the mouth, showing good weight and presence with a lively, surprisingly structured finish that retains sufficient finesse. This is showing well and should give drinking pleasure over the next decade. Tasted at Flint Wines’ Taupenot-Merme retrospective.

    This is also cool and airy with its classic Gevrey nose of earth, underbrush and humus nuances that add breadth to the ripe mix of both red and dark berry aromas. There is evident minerality on the detailed, intense and delicious medium-bodied flavors that possess fine depth on the balanced and lingering finish. Lovely.

    The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Bel Air 1er Cru has a multifaceted bouquet of red cherry, crushed strawberry and cranberry scents; hints of vervain tea and undergrowth lend complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a lovely bead of acidity, and the sensual, velvety-smooth finish reveals notes of kirsch and blood orange. Wonderful. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting. (DIAM 10 closure)

The palate is well balanced with fine balance, very terroir-driven with great tension and vibrant red cherry and strawberry fruit bursting forth on the finish. Superb.

    Rich dense purple. The bouquet is more opulent than is typical for this terroir which may be no bad thing. Lovely opulent perfumed fruit, the right ripeness of cherry and an excellent thread of mineral acidity. Fine balance, as good a Belair as I can remember from barrel. 13.4% alcohol Tasted: December 2021

    (from Craite Paille, Les Seuvrées, Belair and La Justice). A notably ripe yet still agreeably fresh combination reveals its aromas of dark currant, warm earth, the sauvage and a discreet hint of wood. There is once again very good energy to the nicely detailed and lightly stony medium-bodied flavors that possess a surprising inner mouth perfume, all wrapped in a lingering and solidly powerful finale. This is a quality Gevrey villages and worth checking out. (89-91)/2026+

    Taupenot Merme Mazoyeres-Chambertin Grand Cru 2012 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (92-94)

    The 2012 Mazoyeres-Chambertin is a bit subdued today, with less of its typical explosiveness. Violets, lavender, sweet herbs and new leather add complexity over time. In my view, the Mazoyeres, is the flagship wine at Taupenot Merme. In this tasting it comes across as not fully put together.

    Vinous (95)

    The 2016 Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru is consistent with previous notes. It is blessed with an irresistible bouquet that showcases Romain Taupenot's ability to conjure crystalline fruit from this vineyard. Medium-bodied on the palate, not inherently powerful, yet equipped with such a saline, complex finish that you cannot help but immediately return for another sip. This is superb.

    The 2019 Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru has a little more intensity than the Charmes-Chambertin, damp undergrowth, moss, light leafy aromas tincturing the mainly red fruit and developing more and more earthiness with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Taut and fresh with perhaps the most saline finish of all Romain Taupenot’s cuvées this year, it is destined to be a wonderful Mazoyères-Chambertin for sure. Best in show chez Taupenot-Merme.

The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine acidity, taut and fresh with veins of orange zest and white pepper on the finish. Great length, but this is quite strict and therefore cellaring is recommended

The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet entry, ripe red cherry mixed with allspice and white pepper, segueing into a quite a concentrated finish with a long spicy after that might deceive you into think there are stems here. One of my picks from Taupenot-Merme this year.

    The 2010 Nuits St. Georges Les Pruliers is one of the more immediate of the 1er Crus at Taupenot-Merme. A burst of dark red fruit flows through to the juicy, expressive finish. The firm tannins need time to soften, but I don't see the Pruliers ever becoming as refined as the very best wines in this lineup.

There is plenty of tightly knitted fruit here, and a patina of oak that is still to be assimilated, but also wonderful detail and subtlety on the sublime, sophisticated finish. This has enormous potential. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting. (DIAM 10 closure)

    Tim Atkin (96)

    Romain Taupenot has not been afraid to make ageworthy wines in 2012, but they aren't overly tannic or woody, just structured and well balanced. This is a case in point: a subtly oaked Grand Cru with real drive and precision. The fruit is sweet and supple, but it's surrounded by fine-grained tannins and mineral freshness.

    Taupenot Merme Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2013 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (92-94)

    The 2013 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a gorgeous floral bouquet with ebullient red cherries and wild strawberry scents, a fine mineral core just underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, touches of orange rind and spice toward the finish that is linear and strict at the moment, but will open up once in bottle. Very fine.

    Taupenot Merme Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2015 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (93-95)

    The 2015 Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru has an expressive bouquet with redcurrant, raspberry coulis, a touch of honey and a hint of Seville orange marmalade. It opens nicely in the glass, though does not slip into fifth gear at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, cohesive in the mouth and quite saline and spicy. There is generosity here, a trait of Charmes-Chambertin, with the mineral core surfacing right at the finish as it fans out. This is an impressive follow-up to the superb 2014 and it should give 20+ years of pleasure.

    Taupenot Merme Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2019 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93-95)

    The 2019 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a straightforward, focused bouquet with brambly red fruit, briary and tea leaf aromas, though it just lacks the assertiveness and intensity you seek from a Grand Cru. The palate is better with a light spiced opening, good weight and cohesion with black pepper and sea salt infused red fruit. Quite Mazoyères in terms of structure towards the finish, this will benefit from 4-6 years in bottle.

    Taupenot Merme Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2020 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (93-95)

    The 2020 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru was very closed on the nose despite encouragement. This feels very introverted. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fine acidity, more expressive here in the mouth than on the nose with black pepper, bay leaf and clove towards the finish. Give this a few years in bottle and wait for the aromatics to blossom.

    Taupenot Merme Corton-Rognet Grand Cru 2011 (6x75cl)

    Wine Advocate (91)

    The 2011 Corton Rognet Grand Cru has a more reticent nose with subtle marine scents emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins on the entry. This is a tertiary Corton with attractive damp earthy and moss accents that inform the composed understated finish. Drink now-2020.

    Vinous (93-95)

    The 2020 Corton-Rognet Grand Cru has a very well-delineated bouquet, very terroir-driven, crushed stone infusing the red fruit a touch of white pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fresh acidity, taut and crisp, gently building towards quite a complex finish with touches of Early Grey infusing the red fruit, cracked black pepper on the aftertaste. Excellent.

    Taupenot Merme Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Bel Air 2011 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (90)

    The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Bel-Air 1er Cru demonstrates more cohesion and harmony on the nose compared directly with the 2011 Les Pruliers, vibrant cranberry and raspberry preserve scents, a little smoke and graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, a gentle grip in the mouth, showing good weight and presence with a lively, surprisingly structured finish that retains sufficient finesse. This is showing well and should give drinking pleasure over the next decade. Tasted at Flint Wines’ Taupenot-Merme retrospective.

    This is also cool and airy with its classic Gevrey nose of earth, underbrush and humus nuances that add breadth to the ripe mix of both red and dark berry aromas. There is evident minerality on the detailed, intense and delicious medium-bodied flavors that possess fine depth on the balanced and lingering finish. Lovely.

    The 2015 Gevrey-Chambertin Bel Air 1er Cru has a multifaceted bouquet of red cherry, crushed strawberry and cranberry scents; hints of vervain tea and undergrowth lend complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and a lovely bead of acidity, and the sensual, velvety-smooth finish reveals notes of kirsch and blood orange. Wonderful. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting. (DIAM 10 closure)

    The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Bel Air 1er Cru is overly floral on the nose with raspberry, cranberry and light loamy aromas, more oyster shell scents emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with fine balance, very terroir-driven with great tension and vibrant red cherry and strawberry fruit bursting forth on the finish. Superb.

    Rich dense purple. The bouquet is more opulent than is typical for this terroir which may be no bad thing. Lovely opulent perfumed fruit, the right ripeness of cherry and an excellent thread of mineral acidity. Fine balance, as good a Belair as I can remember from barrel. 13.4% alcohol Tasted: December 2021

    (from Craite Paille, Les Seuvrées, Belair and La Justice). A notably ripe yet still agreeably fresh combination reveals its aromas of dark currant, warm earth, the sauvage and a discreet hint of wood. There is once again very good energy to the nicely detailed and lightly stony medium-bodied flavors that possess a surprising inner mouth perfume, all wrapped in a lingering and solidly powerful finale. This is a quality Gevrey villages and worth checking out. (89-91)/2026+

The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, quite structured with a Morey-like personality on the finish. This is quite stylish and should age well in bottle.

    Taupenot Merme Mazoyeres-Chambertin Grand Cru 2012 (6x75cl)

    Vinous (92-94)

    The 2012 Mazoyeres-Chambertin is a bit subdued today, with less of its typical explosiveness. Violets, lavender, sweet herbs and new leather add complexity over time. In my view, the Mazoyeres, is the flagship wine at Taupenot Merme. In this tasting it comes across as not fully put together.

    The 2016 Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru is consistent with previous notes. It is blessed with an irresistible bouquet that showcases Romain Taupenot's ability to conjure crystalline fruit from this vineyard. Medium-bodied on the palate, not inherently powerful, yet equipped with such a saline, complex finish that you cannot help but immediately return for another sip. This is superb.

    The 2019 Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru has a little more intensity than the Charmes-Chambertin, damp undergrowth, moss, light leafy aromas tincturing the mainly red fruit and developing more and more earthiness with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Taut and fresh with perhaps the most saline finish of all Romain Taupenot’s cuvées this year, it is destined to be a wonderful Mazoyères-Chambertin for sure. Best in show chez Taupenot-Merme.

    The 2020 Mazoyères-Chambertin Grand Cru has a vivacious nose - according to Romain Taupenot it was much more closed the previous week. Hints of brown spice infused the red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine acidity, taut and fresh with veins of orange zest and white pepper on the finish. Great length, but this is quite strict and therefore cellaring is recommended

    The 2020 Morey-Saint-Denis La Riotte 1er Cru is expressive on the nose with dark berry fruit, sous-bois, just a touch of tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with a sweet entry, ripe red cherry mixed with allspice and white pepper, segueing into a quite a concentrated finish with a long spicy after that might deceive you into think there are stems here. One of my picks from Taupenot-Merme this year.

    The 2010 Nuits St. Georges Les Pruliers is one of the more immediate of the 1er Crus at Taupenot-Merme. A burst of dark red fruit flows through to the juicy, expressive finish. The firm tannins need time to soften, but I don't see the Pruliers ever becoming as refined as the very best wines in this lineup.

    The 2015 Nuits Saint-Georges Les Pruliers 1er Cru has a temptress of a nose, with open, welcoming red cherry, crushed strawberry and subtle mineral scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin. There is plenty of tightly knitted fruit here, and a patina of oak that is still to be assimilated, but also wonderful detail and subtlety on the sublime, sophisticated finish. This has enormous potential. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting. (DIAM 10 closure)

The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, very composed and with good intensity. The backbone of this Pruliers is evident toward the finish, which displays fine salinity, completing an accomplished wine.

The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and a fine bead of acidity. Quite linear in style, it politely refuses to fan out on the finish. If you are looking for a strict and slightly backward Les Pruliers then this is the place to come.
