Domaine Taupenot Merme
Working organically since 2001, this is a family-owned (7 generations) Domaine of 13 hectares on the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits. With Grand Crus including Clos des Lambrays, Charmes-Chambertin, Corton Rognet and Mazoyères-Chambertin. Vine-age is an average of 50 years; all grapes are de-stemmed. 25% new oak is used for the village wines, 40% for grand and premier cru. The brother and sister team of Romain and Virginie are at the helm, and are typical of the new generation of Burgundian wine growers who are realizing the full potential of priceless family vineyard parcels by sensitive viticulture and thoughtful winemaking.
