2015 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Taupenot-Merme

A touch closed at the moment, but certainly one of the best examples from this large and varied Grand Cru. It’s pure and well balanced, with ripeness of fruit and freshness in perfect equilibrium.

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.
