Domaine Taupenot-Merme, Auxey-Duresses, 1er Cru, 2013
Drinking Window: 2018 - 2025
Since Romain Taupenot took over this domaine in 1998, quality has been progressing continuously, making him one of the rising stars in Burgundy. The Auxey-Duresses appellation is a source for some inexpensive Pinots and Romain’s style of wine is elegant rather than powerful. This has lovely, precise and delicate red cherry and violet notes. The fine-grained tannins are in balance with the aromatic red fruit palate and it’s fresh on the finish.
