Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
About the Winery:
Located in the village of Morey St Denis, Domaine Taupenot-Merme was created in 1963 from the marriage of Jean Taupenot and Denise Merme. It is now run by the brother and sister team of Romain and Virginie Taupenot. For many years, two different estates operated simultaneously, one in Morey St Denis and one in St Romain. These were then merged when Romain took over in 1998. Romain likes to fly under the radar–a soft-spoken man with a gentle demeanor and an outstanding knowledge of the region who makes classic wines of purity and finesse.

Ratings & Reviews:

92-94 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"(Taupenot makes less than a barrel of wine annually from a tiny parcel planted in 1975 at the bottom of the Clos des Lambrays): Slightly hazy medium red. A deep earthy perfume complements aromas of raspberry, spices and dried flowers. A bit imploded but surprisingly fresh and vibrant on the palate, with flavors of raspberry and flowers tweaked by a pungent blood orange note. The very long, slowly mounting finish features slightly tight tannins, a subtle saline quality and considerable finesse."This is never a powerful style, but more about length and charm," noted Taupenot. Still, this beauty will need at least seven or eight years of bottle aging." - Stephen Tanzer (Jan 2016)

91-93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru remains one of the Cote de Nuits' most elusive wines. I've never actually tasted the finished wine that comes from the 420-meter square of vine that I am sure LVMH are gnashing their teeth for. This year it amounts to 180-liters. It has a lovely cranberry and fresh strawberry-scented bouquet struck through with fine mineralité and tension. The palate is tensile on the entry, a precise line of acidity, quite linear and correct, but perhaps without the persistence of the Mazoyères or the Charmes-Chambertin on the finish. If you can find a bottle, this will deserve a couple of years to settle down." - Neal Martin (30th Dec 2015)

90-92 Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"A discreetly spicy and attractively pure nose is composed of essence of red pinot fruit, cherry, spice, earth and once again a hint of herbal tea. There is a lovely richness to the equally pure middle weight flavors that are supported by slightly tough tannins on the mildly austere finish. As the description suggests this is somewhat awkward today but I suspect that this will eventually round out." (Jan 15, 2016)
