The wonderfully sleek, concentrated and intensely mineral-laden flavors possess the hallmark refinement of a fine Taillepieds, all wrapped in a very firmly structured but not really austere finale. With that said, this is a 'buy and forget you own it' wine for at least 10 years and it should ultimately need 20 to 25 years to fully mature.

Spicy forest floor and tobacco pouch aromas lead you into a palate that is grippy, peppery and firm, with layers of red cherry and raspberry fruit embellished by 30% new wood.

Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, this is a lively and serious wine, underpinned by a muscular chassis of rich, powdery tannin.- WK

The bouquet has gone reticent but this has a brilliant velvety texture and then a bit of steel at the finish. Very youthful and potentially exceptional.

(90-92 points) The 2018 Volnay Les Taillepieds 1er Cru is 100% whole cluster like the Mitans, but has an earthier bouquet than the Champans or Mitans, mulch and autumn leaves infusing the dark berry fruit. The palate is...   (90-92 points) The 2018 Volnay Les Taillepieds 1er Cru is 100% whole cluster like the Mitans, but has an earthier bouquet than the Champans or Mitans, mulch and autumn leaves infusing the dark berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with good depth, although this is one cuvée where I feel the whole cluster dominates the finish in lieu of terroir expression. -- Neal Martin
