2008 Taupenot-Merme, Auxey-DuressesApr. 2010
Dark, faintly herbal aromas. Edgy black / red fruit with a sweet coating. Balanced, and with a very nice finish.
2008 Taupenot-Merme, Morey St.DenisApr. 2010
Dark, slightly herbal fruit. In the mouth this is full and masculine, there’s a stickiness to the tannin too. Lovely length – this lingers excellently.
2008 Taupenot-Merme, Gevrey-ChambertinApr. 2010
Dark aromas, this time with hints of wood. In the mouth this starts much narrower than the Morey – it remains quite linear, never really competing with the width of that wine, but it’s intense and long.
2008 Taupenot-Merme, Chambolle-Musigny La Combe d'OrveauxApr. 2010
Virginie must ahve mentioned at least 3 times that these vines are next to Musigny ;-) Understated dark fruit with a very pretty herbal dimension. Fine tannin. Narrow, linear, intense character. Balanced and displaying his is a honey of a wine – and did you know it’s very close to Musigny…
2008 Taupenot-Merme, Nuits St.Georges Les PruliersApr. 2010
Medium-plus colour. Again the aromas are dominated by dark fruits. Powerful, ripe fruit flavours with plenty of velvet. Excellent mid-palate dimension before the tannin saturates your tongue – makes the flavour last very long.
2008 Taupenot-Merme, Mazoyères-ChambertinApr. 2010
Hints of oak dovetail with the dark fruit. Super-silky and (sorry I can’t help it…) super-sexy texture. Plenty of structure lies below the surface, but it is mainly buried. Very long, this is super.
1988 Taupenot-Merme, Charmes-ChambertinApr. 2010
Sweet aromas that remain fresh despite a hint of mushroom. Silky, plenty of fat and still with a slug of ripe tannin. Good in the mid-palate too – this is very good.
