The 2011 Morey St. Denis 1er Cru La Riotte, which comes from a 0.56-hectare parcel, sports a pretty, feminine bouquet with light red cherry, fresh strawberry and dried rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and very good focus. No, there is not the length of a more benevolent season, but there is great poise and tension allied with a directness that would make it a superb match at the dinner table. Drink now-2017. ||Taupenot-Merme was my final visit of the week. I have been following these wines for a number of years, even predating my wine writing career. Winemaker Romain Taupenot and his sister Virginie run the domaine in the centre of Morey-Saint-Denis and fashion a classical style of Burgundy wine that I feel has improved in recent years. Their 2011s are well-crafted and are mainly predesigned for early to mid-term consumption. eRobertParker.com.August, 2013

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.
