Domaine Taupenot-Merme Gevrey Chambertin Bel Air 2009




This displays a hint of forest floor along with ripe aromas of spiced plum and mocha. There is excellent richness to the relatively full-bodied flavors that possess good power and an attractive mineral hint that continues onto the robust finish where the ripe tannins coat the palate.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin Bel Air impresses for its super-refined personality. Freshly cut flowers, dark cherries, mint and spices are some of the many notes that float across the palate in this airy, delicate Gevrey. There is no heaviness at all. The Bel Air is vibrant and classy from start to finish. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2027.
