One of the Volnay's most prized sites, the Taillepieds is named for its foot-cutting sharp stones that litter the steep, shallow soil with limestone just below. With a sun-facing south-east aspect coupled with harsh conditions, perfect drainage and mineral-rich soils, the Taillepieds offers classic Volnay fruit expression tempered by notable precision and floral elegance. Somewhat overlooked for offering such wonderful fundamentals, the Taillepieds is a sweet-spot for value in Volnay.

92-95/100 Allen Meadows, Burghound (2016 Vintage)
"Very generous wood and menthol elements aren't fully integrated with the very ripe black cherry and raspberry liqueur-like aromas that flash soft spice and floral nuances. There is a strikingly lovely mouth feel to the intense mineral-driven and despite the excellent richness, first-rate delineation to the more powerful if perhaps slightly less refined finish this is linear, serious and gorgeously long. A knock-out. Drink 2031+"

90-92/100 Stephen Tanzer, Vinous (2016 Vintage)
"(no frost): Bright ruby-red. Sweet but lightly medicinal aromas of red and black cherry; seemed to close up in the glass. Supple and concentrated but quite primary, even a bit reduced, and distinctly less showy today than the Caillerets. The medicinal quality carries through on the finish, where the slightly angular tannins build. This wine needs a racking–not to mention time in the cellar."
