Product Overview

Importer Notes
"The reputable 1er Cru of "Taillepieds" takes its name from its steep slope and the sharp stone on which the winegrowers "cut their feet" when working in the vines. De-Montille's parcel is mid-slope and has 80 year old vines. This is another "Grand Premier Cru" in the eyes of De Montille, which is why the vineyard supercedes the appellation/village on the label.

De Montille's Taillepieds is one of the true "flagships" of the domaine, and is a model of aromatic purity and precision. The nose is consistently floral and spicy with earthy elements, while the palate is structured with a tight, dense and tannic profile. Chewy in its youth, but purity and minerality are revealed with time. A serious and long-lived wine in the De Montille lineup."

(93-95) Points - Vinous
"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." -NM, Oct/2021
