Sitting in the heart of the prestigious Burgundy terroir, the Taupenot-Merme Domaine planted its roots in Morey Saint Denis and extends over 13 hectares in the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune.
Although the present-day Domaine was born of the encounter and marriage in 1963 of Jean Taupenot, originally from Saint Romain, and Denise Merme, from Morey Saint Denis, its history goes back several centuries. The origin of this family, winegrowing tradition dates back to the 18th century.
Since 2005, the Domaine has produced 19 appellations in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on almost 13 hectares, with 4 Grands Crus (great vintage), 6 Premiers Crus (first vintage), 7 “villages” and 3 wines with a regional designation. These wines seek to express the finesse and typical characteristics of the terroir, in order to create a unique product every time.
The vineyards have been cultivated organically since 2001. The Domaine Taupenot-Merme exports approximately 80% of its production to over 30 countries worldwide.
Virginie, born in 1971, is responsible for the administrative and commercial side of the Domaine. She has been the president of the association “Femmes et Vins de Bourgogne” since July 2008.
Romain, born in 1966, is responsible for the vinification. He also looks after other commercial markets. They represent the seventh generation, respecting the family tradition and being attentive to development necessary in order to respond to the new challenges of the 21st century.
