Domaine de Montille Volnay les Taillepieds 2010
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Domaine de Montille|
A Volnay "Taillepieds" has little to envy of the Grand Crus of the Côte de Nuits: it is a model of aromatique purity, precision and rigor in its construction. The definition on the nose is precise, pure, often floral, always mineral and spicy. The mouthfeel is framed by a tight tannic structure yet is dense. All these elements, the mineral, the purity, the rigor and the elegance evoque thoughts of a Cistercian building, which like the abbeys, seem to defy time. Effectively, a "Taillepieds" can age and shine for decades, as solid as a rock.
