2013 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Taupenot-Merme

Taupenot Merme’s Charmes-Chambertin is one of the best examples that we know of, fully warranting its Grand Cru classification, showing the richness and the density you would expect. It seems to be used a lot this vintage, but vivid is definitely the word to describe the fruit quality. A joy to taste, it will go on to be a very special wine.

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.
