The aromas have a rare complexity and elegance. They offer an astonishing bouquet of spices, cherry pits, black fruits, dried flowers, musk and hard candies. The textures are simultaneously dense and ethereal. The attacks are brisk and the mid-palates are etheral and lengthy. The tannins are soft and well-wrapped in intense fruit that vascilates between tangy and sweet. The suave finishes offer refreshment and persistence.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Les Taillepieds comes from a 1.51-hectare parcel of vines on pebbly brown limestone soils. It possesses a complex, almost savory bouquet, with warm slate scents emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, good acidity and a digestif element in the background. Demonstrating impressive depth with an herbaceous finish, this Volnay Taillepieds fans out nicely and leaves a saline aftertaste. This is Volnay should offer great pleasure over its first 10 years, possibly more.
