One often-overlooked aspect of Taupenot-Merme is that its origins are tied with the domaine that lies directly opposite in Morey-Saint-Denis: Perrot-Minot. Christophe Perrot-Minot is Romain Taupenot's cousin, and this explains the similarities in their respective vineyard holdings throughout Burgundy and especially within Morey-St-Denis and the nearby villages. We were enamored with this medium-bodied, red-fruited expression of Auxey-Duresses, an off-the-beaten path village wine. Sourced from the 53-year old, 0.4ha Le Claux lieu-dit, this humble red Burgundy has an excellent balance of freshness and weight for its price point, along with a subtle woodsmoke and soil character. Within our industry circles, there's a growing consenssus that Romain Taupenot is emerging as one of the new great winemakers in the Côte d'Or, and the Grand Cru wines are being fought over each year. It was no surprise when legendary importer Kermit Lynch swooped up the domaine for distribution in the US. This is a great peek at the house style without going in deep for one of the higher end bottlings. We also have a single case of library release Grand Cru Corton-Rognets from the 2007 vintage that is drinking better than any Corton we can remember having in the last decade. Simply exquisite.
