The Volnay "Les Taillepieds" has little to envy to the great wines of the Côte de Nuits: it is a model of aromatic purity, precision and rigor in its construction. The definition of the nose is precise, pure, often floral, always mineral and spicy. The palate is structured with a very tight, dense, mineral tannic structure. All these elements, the mineral, the purity, the rigor and the elegance evoke a Cistercian building which, like the abbeys, seems to defy time. Indeed, a "Taillepieds" can age and shine for decades.

The 2019 Volnay Les Taillepieds 1er Cru was showing a little more oak on the nose compared to the Champans. The 100% whole cluster lends some black pepper and clove notes to the aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, good density and grip and a bold but balanced, slightly earthy, spicy finish. Good potential but it will need time.

Aromas of peonies, plums, red berries, potpourri, warm spices and orange rind introduce de Montille's 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Taillepieds, a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy wine that's deep and concentrated, with lively acids and supple tannins that assert themselves gently on the finish. As usual, this will require some patience.
