2012 Taupenot Merme Premier Cru Morey Saint Denis 'La Riotte'

Description

"90-92/100 - Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com17/20 - Jancis Robinson MWLa Riotte is located at the heart of the Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru belt, on the slopes immediately below the village and the Clos Saint-Denis Grand Cru. Morey St Denis is on the same limestone ridge as Chambolle and Gevrey, situated in between the two and balancing the elegance of the former with the richness of the latter."Same geology as Mazoyères. One of Morey's leading premiers crus with at least three owners. Taupenot Merme's vines are about 55 years old. Deep bright crimson. Fascinating nose with sumptous fruit and lovely balance. Red fruit flavours and great confidence."Jancis Robinson MW"The 2012 Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru La Riotte has a generous, floral bouquet with redcurrant and pomegranate fruit, a subtle scent of wet clay developing with aeration. The palate is crisp and crunchy on the entry. This has a taut texture, more masculine than the Chambolle Combe d'Orveau with a serious, slight introspective finish that deserves 3-4 years bottle age." Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com"
