Jeroboam Room @ Cabotte
10am Tasting / 12.30 Lunch
Hosted by Flint Wines
By invitation only
There is a long history of viticulture in the Taupenot family and Romain Taupenot, who runs this fantastic estate, is the seventh generation to make it his métier The actual domaine was founded in 1963 after the marriage of Denise Merme and Jean Taupenot and Romain joined full time in 1998.
In terms of vineyard holdings, thanks in large part to the history and depth of the family, the domaine is spread quite widely across the Cote d’Or with vines in Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Nuits-St-Georges, Corton, Saint-Romain and Auxey-Duresses. Aside from making for a very interesting tasting when visiting the domaine, and perhaps more importantly, it presents Romain with an opportunity to prove how he likes to allow the vineyards to express themselves and not cloud their individuality with a house style. Romain describes himself as a ‘terroirist’ and he is not one to adulterate his fruit.
We’ll be glad if you can join us to taste his wines before we sit down to match some older vintages with chef Edward Boarland's specially chosen menu.
