2014 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru La Riotte, Domaine Taupenot-Merme

A small vineyard just below the village, Romain’s La Riotte is a true expression of Morey-Saint-Denis. Spice on the nose, both sweet from the 30% new oak, but also more peppery, savoury. There is depth to the dark fruit and minerality on the gently muscular palate, whilst mouth filling volume returns that spiciness to the back palate.

2014 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.
