2013 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Bel-Air, Domaine Taupenot-Merme

Bel-Air sits just above Le Chambertin and is the only vineyard to come in direct contact with the famed vineyard not to be classified as Grand Cru. The altitude of the vineyard gives a coolness to the fruit and a crystalline purity to the wine. This is an amazingly well defined, chiselled Gevrey-Chambertin that is the very definition of refinement.

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.
