2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, Domaine Taupenot-Merme

Romain is one of only two producers to separate holdings in Mazoyères and Charmes Chambertin. And we can see why. This has amazing amplitude, with balance, juicy fruit and floral notes and a touch of blood orange skin. A genuine Grand Cru.

2017 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, 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.
