Volnay Taillepieds, Domaine Marquis d'Angerville 2021

Tasting Notes

This is as aromatically spicy as the Caillerets but it's every bit as elegant and a bit cooler as well with its more floral-inflected red berry fruit scents. There is better density to the even more mineral-driven flavors that are akin to rolling a small stone around the mouth while exhibiting the classic youthful austerity on the impressively long, focused and compact finale. As with all young examples of Taillepieds, this is definitely going to require at least some forbearance.

Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (90), April 2023

The 2021 Volnay 1er Cru Taillepieds opens in the glass with aromas of plums, bonfire, sweet soil tones and spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy palate that's one of the more structured, tensile wines in the range, exhibiting powdery tannins and a mineral finish.

William Kelley, RobertParker.com, January 2023

Seven barrels were made from 1.05ha, a yield of about 15 hl/ha. Another fine even fresh purple. The nose is more restrained, some walnuts again. There is fine density on the palate, a certain lush quality unusual in 2021, with very good length Drink from 2028-2033.
