Chambolle-Musigny Taupenot Merme

, 2006

France Burgundy Red

Burgundy 75cl

This is one of my new favourite Burgundy producers. Wines that are elegant and fresh, very pure and reflect the terroir and typicity of the appelations. This is a lovely gentle Chambolle. Delicate perfumed Pinot fruit on the nose. It's wonderfully bright, elegant and hugely drinkable at this young stage. Delicate raspberry, cherry and plum fruit, hints of meaty gamey characters and subtle oak. It's really quite delicious now but at 30 does not have the complexity you would expect. It's a real case of a wine that would have been c22-23 last year but a 20-25% hit on the exchange rate has moved this up. But as a wine it's really lovely. Drink now before it closes up. Or wait 5 years. Not going to make old bones in any event.
