2014 Domaine Taupenot-Merme Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru (Previously $200)

SKU #1467939 94 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The 2014 Charmes-Chambertin from Domaine Taupenot-Merme is outstanding on both the nose and palate. The pure and complex nose wafts from the glass in a classic blend of red and black cherries, gamebird, mustard seed, coffee, a fine, complex base of soil, smoky overtones and a nice touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and beautifully sappy at the core, with fine-grained tannins, lovely focus and grip and a very long, very pure and absolutely vibrant finish. Fine, fine juice. 94+ Inner quote mark (4/2016)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Here the pretty, fresh and even airy nose is distinctly floral in character with lovely notes of mostly red currant, earth and soft underbrush nuances. There is good richness to the round and solidly well-concentrated flavors that culminate in a dusty, palate coating and beautifully long finish. This isn't as structured as the Mazoyères but will certainly require at last 7 to 8 years of restraint. Inner quote mark (1/2017)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright, dark red. Captivating floral high tones to the aromas of cherry and dark raspberry. Silky, sappy, deep and rich, offering a creamy sweetness to its almost unctuous red fruit, spice and underbrush flavors. Here's a 2014 with more than enough mid-palate stuffing to coat its tannins. Taupenot suggests holding this wine for eight or nine years for more complexity. (ST) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is tightly wound, with macerated cherry, berry and herbal flavors bound up in a cloak of spicy oak. Persistent and lively, presenting a long aftertaste. All the elements are in the right proportions. (BS) Inner quote mark (5/2017)

K&L Notes

93 points Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Clear bright paler red purple. Stems with a slightly savoury note, drier finish. This could develop into a fine wine but for the moment it is slightly hidden. May have misread this because there does seem to be latent concentration. Actually builds steadily in the glass."
