Wine Advocate 90 points - The Taupenot-Merme 2008 Gevrey-Chambertin Bel Air ? from that small, intriguing site above Clos de Beze ? follows the apparent pattern for the domaine in this vintage by featuring kirsch and plum distillate laced with citrus oil in a high-toned display that some may consider overly volatile but I find entrancing. A mouthful of tart cherry, plum, red currant, and chalk dust seemingly leaves it to the freshly butchered raw meat of the animal that has eaten them to reveal the herbs and flowers one looks for from this sector. (I beg apology for any inadvertent offense to advocates of vegetarianism.) This is admittedly relatively spare, but conveys fascinating complexity and real finishing energy, not to mention sheer refreshment (which admittedly, will not be high on everyone?s list of red wine values). I would anticipate at least 8-10 very active years of life. (Jun 2010)
