2014 Domaine Taupenot-Merme

Les Prulieres, Nuits-Saint-Georges Premier Cru, France



Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Pruliers from Taupenot-Merme, closed under Diam 10, is lively and penetrating on the nose: red cherries, wild strawberry, a tang of marmalade and even a hint of rhubarb. This is quite complex and evolving, gaining more and more harmony as it opens in the bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, fine but quite solid tannin that lend this backbone, impressive density and a gentle grip toward the saline finish. This Nuits-Saint-Georges has bags of potential and punches above its weight, but my advice would be to cellar for 4-5 years. Tasted September 2017. -- Rated 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
