Romain Taupenot continues to oversee the inexorable climb of this fantastic domaine, now indisputably in the premier League, whilst retaining its value proposition. He crafts wines of structure, clear vineyard expression, and complexity from an exciting array of vineyards, and the wines are high class examples of their appellations.

"The 2011 Morey St. Denis 1er Cru La Riotte, which comes from a 0.56-hectare parcel, sports a pretty, feminine bouquet with light red cherry, fresh strawberry and dried rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and very good focus. No, there is not the length of a more benevolent season, but there is great poise and tension allied with a directness that would make it a superb match at the dinner table. Drink now-2017. [...] Winemaker Romain Taupenot and his sister Virginie run the domaine in the centre of Morey-Saint-Denis and fashion a classical style of Burgundy wine that I feel has improved in recent years. Their 2011s are well-crafted and are mainly predesigned for early to mid-term consumption." 90 points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
