The 2009 Domaine Taupenot-Merme La Combe d’Orveau, Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru is a red wine from Côte de Nuits, in Burgundy, made from Pinot Noir only. As per the definition of Chambolle-Musigny, these wines are the most “feminine” among the Côte de Nuits’ reds, with typical floral notes providing the elegance element in wines that are rich, complex and relatively light.
And Romain Taupenot, winemaker at Domaine Taupenot-Merme, defines himself as a “terroirist“, firmly believing that avoiding heavy handed techniques contributes to express the character of the wines better. This wine makes no exception, with its red fruit and sweet oak aromas being complemented by spice and tobacco.
We recommend the bottle for any occasion where impressing is the aim, whether that being a smart dinner party or just a friends’ reunion. Nevertheless, this 2009 Domaine Taupenot-Merme La Combe d’Orveau, Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru can well be an outstanding gift. Food wise, game or lamb would make both an excellent pairing.
