Tasting Notes

The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis La Riotte 1er Cru has a slightly more confit-like bouquet than Taupenot-Merme's other 2017s, a little showier, but still very pure, revealing hints of kirsch and blood orange. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, a fine bead of acidity and just a little chewiness toward the finish, which delivers firm grip. Excellent.
91-93 Points, Neal Martin

Mid cherry red. Dark-red fruit. This has a dry, chalky texture that strikes more than the fruit on the palate, but the fruit is there to re-emerge with time. At the moment it seems dry and a little severe on the palate. Hard work just now, rather muscular. Needs more time but it’s long.
16.5++/20 Points, Julia Harding, JancisRobinson.com

TASTING NOTES

A concentrated but restrained nose with subtle red cherry and ethereal smoky, floral notes, leads to a palate of ripe, concentrated smoky black and red cherries and juicy strawberry and raspberry fruit.  The spicy palate is enhanced by lovely chewy tannins and a firm, powerful mineral length. Very impressive indeed. Drink from 2023.Armit Wines

TASTING NOTES

The 2019 Bourgogne Rouge "Cuvée Maison Dieu" comes from vines just under those of Château de Pommard, close to the roundabout. It has a generous bouquet with red cherries and raspberry fruit. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, crunchy red fruit with a slightly terse finish. Neil Martin
