Other Reviews....
A ripe but cool, pure and airy nose freely offers up its notes of plum liqueur, violet, lavender and wet stone. There is impressive intensity to the chiseled medium-bodied flavors that possess very fine mid-palate density as well as an almost aggressive minerality on the moderately austere, compact, long and balanced finale. This is excellent and historically, is a wine that always ages well. Drink through 2032+.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2020 Volnay Les Taillepieds 1er Cru comes from two parcels is 90% whole cluster. Brambly red berry fruit is mingling with black pepper, clove and touches of undergrowth. The palate is medium-bodied with quite succulent tannins, more rondeur here than the other Volnays, plush and quite luxuriant wiht a sensual and very pure finish. Superb. Drink 2025-2048.

Neal Martin - Vinous

90% whole cluster. Imperial purple. This wine has the ideal balance between whole bunch freshness and the fruit of the vintage, which does not have an exaggerated ripeness here. Tight firm finish, crunchy with dry tannins which should resolve without difficulty given a little time.
