From the only premier cru that borders Chambertin or Clos de Bèze, this is beautifully balanced in 2018.This has dark berries and cool mineral notes, and also a touch of opulent spice on the finish. Silky and suave, and pleasingly cool.

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.
