2011 Taupenot-Merme, Domaine Clos des Lambrays Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir: 750ml
Beginning in 1999, a shift
in responsibilities took place Chez Taupenot Merme - with the 7th
generation taking over - and a host of viticultural changes were
introduced. As these improvements were implemented, the wines benefited
from greater personalities ("terroir"), deeper colors, more refined
perfumes, and textures rendering the wines drinkable throughout their
life cycles. Guided by a desire for purity, Romain and his sister
Completed the conversion to organics
Experiment with "chauffage post fermentaire" (which gently extracts "noble" tannins)
Work with 100% destemmed fruit (ala Henri Jayer)
Rack their wines into oak for 12-15 months of fine lees contact
Reduced the amount of new oak (maximum of 40% for Grand Crus)
Including their less-than-barrique-sized quantity of Clos des Lambrays, this 30 acre estate is poised to be a leading domaine of the Cote.
