2013 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru La Riotte, Domaine Taupenot-Merme

Having been blown away by the village Morey, this somehow manages to be a serious step up in quality. The concentration is spectacular, the quality and purity of the fruit is sensational. You could easily be tricked into drinking this wine too young due to its vibrancy, but make no mistake, there is the structure for the long haul.

2013 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru La Riotte, Domaine Taupenot-Merme
Domaine Taupenot-Merme

In the words of Neal Martin in The Wine Advocate, 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.” We don’t disagree. Eponymous winemaker Romain Taupenot is a delight to taste with, candid and engaging, and his wines are equally delightful. They’re a lesson in the reasons why sensitive handling of great vineyards leads to equally great wines.
