94  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 94  Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Pruliers from Taupenot-Merme, is lively and penetrating on the nose: red cherries, wild strawberry, a tang of marmalade and even a hint of rhubarb. This is quite complex and evolving, gaining more and

Taupenot-Merme 1er Cru Gevrey Chambertin Bel Air 2011
91  Decanter 
Decanter 91 "A pure, cool and airy nose offers up notes of red currant, underbrush and that Gevrey sauvage character that can also be found on the energetic and beautifully well-detailed medium weight flavors that exhibit a fine minerality on the delicious if mildly austere finish. I like the

Taupenot-Merme 1er Cru Morey St. Denis La Riotte 2011
90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 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

Taupenot-Merme 1er Cru NSG 1er Cru 'Les Pruliers' 2011
" A densely fruited and notably ripe mix of red currant, plum, cassis and plenty of pungent and warm earth influence. The density continues onto the impressive concentrated medium weight plus flavors... excellent...” ~ Winery notes

89  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 89 " The 2011 Auxey-Duresses 1er Cru is a blend of two parcels in the lieux-dits of Les Duresses and Grands Champs that have been blended since 2007. It has a precise, understated bouquet with scents of wild strawberry and orange blossom, while the palate is well-balanced with a

Taupenot-Merme 1er Cru Gevrey Chambertin Bel Air 2010
Burghound 90-92 "Note: a little known 1er that sits directly above Chambertin-Clos de Bèze made from vines planted in 1973. Here the aromatic profile changes and becomes more openly animale yet there is still a certain elegance to the red raspberry, stone, earth and forest floor scents. There is

Taupenot-Merme 1er Cru Nuits St George 2010 Les Pruliers
Burghound 91-93 "A densely fruited and notably ripe mix of red currant, plum, cassis and plenty of pungent and warm earth influence. The density continues onto the impressive concentrated medium weight plus flavors that possess good power and a plenitude of dry extract that confers a velvety palate

Taupenot-Merme 1er Cru Auxey Duresses 2010
Burghound 88-91 "This also displays dark berry fruit but here there is more refinement and slightly more nuance as well in the form of smoked tea and leather. There is a light minerality to the more refined middle weight flavors that possess good delineation and solid depth on the linear and

Taupenot-Merme 1er Cru Morey St. Denis La Riotte 2009
90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 " The 2009 Morey Saint Denis La Riotte is made from a parcel that was planted in 1937. It is a big wine that is somewhat closed in on itself at this stage. Still, there is considerable energy in this tightly coiled, promising wine. The length, focus and intensity all suggest

Taupenot-Merme Nuits St George 1er Cru 'Les Pruliers' 2008
92  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 92"The 2008 Nuits St.-Georges Les Pruliers shows off lovely energy and expressive inner perfume in a feminine, linear style that is quite appealing. In 2008 the Pruliers shows the more reserved and understated side of the house style. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028."

Taupenot-Merme Morey St. Denis 2009
89  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 89"The 2009 Morey St. Denis presents layers of blackberries, blueberries, spices and licorice, all of which come together nicely in the glass. The wine shows terrific focus through to the finish, along with a sensual, inviting personality. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2022. "
