Meet The Winemakers

The domaine is now run by Romain Taupenot, aided by his sister Virginie; they are the seventh generation of Côte de Nuits-based Taupenots, though the domaine also includes, since 2003, the vineyards of the St-Romain branch of the family. Though not certified, the domaine has been organic since 2002.

This is a rare domaine which differentiates between holdings in Charmes- and Mazoyères-Chambertin. Their cousins across the road at Domaine Perrot-Minot do so as well. The Taupenots also own a tiny patch of Clos des Lambrays, though there is not enough for it to be seen commercially in any significant way.

The grapes are sorted on a table de tri, completely destemmed and then given a cool soak at 10ºC/50ºF, fermented for seven to nine days then maintained in the vat at 29ºC/84ºF for a few more days to manage the tannins. The wines then spend 12 to 14 months in barrel without racking until they are assembled in tank for bottling. Several coopers are used, with 30 per cent new wood for the village wines, 40 per cent for the premiers crus and 50 per cent for the grand crus.
