Domaine Taupenot Merme
Brother-and-sister team Virginie and Romain Taupenot are currently at the helm of this outstanding Domaine. It holds 13 hectares under vine on the Côte de Beaune and the Côte de Nuits, with Grands Crus including Clos des Lambrays, Charmes-Chambertin, Corton-Rognet and Mazoyères-Chambertin. These seventh-generation wine growers are typical of the new crop of young Burgundian vignerons who are realising the full potential of priceless family vineyard parcels, through sensitive viticulture and thoughtful winemaking.

All grapes are de-stemmed, with 25% new oak used for the village wines and 40% for grand and premier cru. Virginie looks after sales while Romain works the cellar, producing structured, self-assured Burgundy that expresses their vineyards with accuracy and pride. The wines from this Domaine are consistently improving, vintage after vintage – as shown by a truly exciting set of 2015s off the back of excellent 2013s and '14s.

Romain Taupenot oversees winemaking at Domaine Taupenot-Merme, aided by his sister Virginie. It's widely and correctly acknowledged that the estate, which has been working along organic principles since 2001, is on the up and up in terms of quality. Its results from the 2006 and 2007 vintages are drinking beautifully, and Romain even triumphed against all odds in the difficult vintages of 2012 and 2013.
Cote de Nuits-Villages
Cote de Nuits-Villages is a French wine region located in the northern part of the Côte d'Or, the limestone ridge that is at the heart of the Burgundy wine region. The name "Côte de Nuits" comes from the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges, like Beaune, the capital of its own Côte (or slope).

The terroirs in this region of Burgundy are more than worthy of carrying the Village appellation name instituted in 1964 (a summation of the southern villages of the Côte de Nuits or the appellation Côte de Nuits-Villages). Corgoloin in the South marks the border between the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. To the North, a part of the terroirs belonging to the villages of Brochon and Fixin. Both red (Pinot Noir) and white (Chardonnay) wines may claim this appellation. Producing communes or villages within this region include Fixin, Brochon, Premeaux, Comblanchien and Corgoloin. Today the region boasts 159.25 ha planted to red varietals while whites only constitute 8.79 ha
