Last year Neal Martin said “Duroché’s style of wine is very much in the mold of… Romain Taupenot in Morey-Saint-Denis" and that the latter is now “one of the most reliable and exciting estates” and we wholeheartedly concur.

Romain began harvesting (in Corton) on 16th September, a smaller crop than 2018, and yet was very happy with the quality of the fruit, which showed no rot and good physiological development – brown seeds (rather than green) indicating full phenolic ripeness. In 2017 the early concern was whether the wines would have enough flesh (they did), in 2019 the worry was regarding freshness and balance, but as the élévage has continued he is extremely pleased with the results. The wines have a different shape from 2018 – they are not as ample but there is excellence succulence and focus, vitality and length. Romain offered the following comparison when asked: “the vintage is a blend of 2010 and 2015: The wines don’t have quite the same energy of the former, or the gourmandise sweetness of the latter, nor do they have the definition of 2017, although they will gain more precision. They resemble 2016.” I’m pretty sure this is all positive(!), our tasting certainly was – from village level through to Grand Cru. My perennial favourite Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru Riottes was a highlight, alongside a superb Mazoyeres-Chambertin (or Mazoyeres-Saint Denis as Romain impishly prefers to reference it).

"The 2019 Clos des Lambrays Grand Cru is a "decent" quantity this year according to Romain Taupenot, though that only equates to a measly 170-litres. Despite the miniscule quantity, this is still de-stemmed. It has a crisp nose with brambly red berry fruit, pressed rose petals and a touch of Earl Grey. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannins. It feels cohesive and poised, gentle towards the smooth finish with lightly spiced red fruit, bay leaf and a pinch of sea salt. Lovely...if you can find it." 92-94 pts, Neal Martin, Vinous

"Slightly less intense purple, a soft pleasing strawberry fruit, very sensual right across the palate, this has worked better in 2019 than the year before, with a seductive long finish here. Appealing. Tasted: November 2020" 92-94 pts, Jasper Morris MW
