(BH92-94 points) A restrained yet perfumed nose is the essence of wet stone and ripe pinot, all trimmed in dried floral notes. Like the Mitans, this is also positively crystalline as the flavors seem to be composed from liquid rock and deliver positively huge length along with the hallmark finishing austerity of a young Taillepieds. A highly impressive effort of impeccable balance.

Neal Martin's Wine Journal, March 2011

(NM91-93 points) The Taillepieds is quite stemmy on the nose: blackberry leaf, bell pepper and a touch of dried herbs. The palate has crunchy red-berried fruit on the entry, very traditional in style with firm, obdurate tannins and a foursquare finish. If you like the style of Hubert de Montille’s wines you will love this. Full of character, but not of those desperate from their intense fruit.

It shows fabulous textural richness in its dark red fruit, not to mention a highly engaging personality. This is a very complete and promising wine, but it needs time.

(ST90-92 points) (100% vendange entier; 25% new oak; not yet racked) Medium red, a bit paler than the Mitans. Slightly high-toned aromas of crushed blueberry and rose petal, with a suggestion of citrus fruit. Then supple, sweet and aromatic on the palate, with cooler aromas of red cherry, raspberry and spicy oak. Finishes classically dry, with substantial broad tannins.
