Domaine Taupenot-Merme Gevrey Chambertin 2011


Domaine Taupenot-Merme Gevrey Chambertin 2011 showcases a refreshing bouquet with red currant and underbrush notes.


In the beautiful French wine region of Burgundy, there is archaeological evidence to suggest that there has been viticultural activity going on for at least two thousand years. To add to this, there are early written records praising the exceptional wines produced in this region dating back to the 6th century, making Burgundy one of the oldest established and still operational wine regions in the world. The region is most commonly associated with fine red wines, with Pinot Noir being the primary grape varietal grown on its rolling hillsides and gently sloping valleys. However, Chardonnay grapes are also produced in abundance for the production of their fine white wines, with both varietals benefiting greatly from the region’s warm, hot summers and the superb soils which make up the terroir.

The year 2011 was an interesting year for many northern and central European countries, as the weather was more than unpredictable in the spring and summer. However, in most countries, the climatic conditions thankfully settled down in the late summer and fall. The result of this slightly difficult year of weather in France was a set of surprisingly small yields, but overall, these yields were of a higher quality than those harvested in certain previous years.

The aroma is pure, cool, and breezy, presenting delightful notes of red currant, underbrush, and the characteristic wild quality of Gevrey. This untamed essence is echoed on the lively and finely detailed medium-weight palate, revealing a splendid minerality on the delicious yet subtly austere finish. The wine’s balance is noteworthy, suggesting the potential for gratifying cellar aging of up to a decade, if not a bit more.
