This cuvée is one of the most complete representations of the complexity that can be found in the finest Volnays as it is from one of the great vineyards of that village. Bitouzet owns 0.72 hectares in this renowned mid-slope premier cru, planted in 1971, 1983, and 1997. The poor, hard limestone soils of Taillepieds produce a wine of thundering minerality whose presence is felt even through its blatantly salty finish, and the savory red fruits and subtle floral notes, gorgeous as they are, take a backseat to this overarching impression of mother-rock.

The 2019 Volnay Les Taillepieds 1er Cru comes from a single plot of 0.70 hectares. This has an outgoing bouquet, a mixture of red and black fruit, touches of pressed iris flower and a light sea spray aroma, becoming evermore complex with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, rounded in texture, very fleshy and plush though I would like a little more backbone to counterbalance that on the finish. Fine.

One of the more muscular wines in the range is the 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Taillepieds, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered wine evocative of plums, woodsmoke and spices. This stands out as one of the finest cuvées in this tasting.
