2017 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Bel-Air, Domaine Taupenot-Merme

From the only premier cru that borders Chambertin or Clos de Bèze. Nice density, silky fruit, mineral and cool and wonderful balance,with dancing acidity on the finish. There’s an explosion of juicy red fruit on the palate.

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.
