Producer:

Tasting Notes:

The vines here are 70 years old and produce lovely bunches which Brian was happy not to destem at all. The soil is gravel over limestone and which imparts a dynamic, precise quality to the aromas and flavour. This is really quite lovely.

Press Reviews:

`The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Taillepieds is 100% whole cluster and 30% new oak. This vineyard was not affected by the frost. It has a very intense blackberry and Morello cherry-scented bouquet with hints of iodine and incense developing with time. I adore the controlled opulence here. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin but less rigid than the Mitans, with a touch of salinity, a light marine influence toward the finish. This has very good potential, but it will reward those with patience to cellar 4 or 5 years.` 91-93 points, Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate.
