Average critic rating : 93.0 points



The 2009 Corton Rognets bursts from the glass with considerable muscle and sheer power. Iron, smoke and licorice add complexity to the expressive dark fruit. I especially like the sense of drive. The balance of fruit, structure and minerality is superb in this invigorating Burgundy. Sweet floral notes round out the rich, generous finish. This is a very strong showing from Taupenot-Merme. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029. ||This is a very strong set of wines from Romain Taupenot. The 2009s are quite marked by the year. Today my preference is for the 2010s because the cooler year balanced some of the more overt, fruit-forward leanings that define the house style. Tasting all of the 2009s and 2010s together really brought the qualities of these two very different vintages into focus. eRobertParker.com.April, 2012

Domaine Taupenot-Merme is based in Morey-St-Denis and has 13 hectares under vine in the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. With a history stretching back to the mid 18th century, the estate really began to come into its own in 1998 when Romain Taupenot joined the domaine full time. The organically cultivated vines, together with low yields and careful sorting practices produce wines that are full of fruit, expressive bouquets, and gentle tannins.
