A fresh, perfumed and relatively high-toned nose of elegant and ultra-pure red pinot fruit that is liberally laced with stone and soil nuances that merges seamlessly into rich, detailed and precise flavors that ooze a wet stone character on the energetic, hugely complex and explosively long finish. This is almost always a classy effort but in 2009 it is also beautifully stylish despite the tannins being by far and away the firmest in the range. This has the concentration and balance to age for several decades and while it's probably not going to outlive the '05, it's an unusually structured 2009. If you can find it, buy it.

Medium red. Reticent aromas of redcurrant, dried flowers, minerals, earth and leather; I was reminded of nebbiolo! Then sweet and seamless in the mouth, with terrific minerally grip and spicy lift to the dark cherry and saline flavors. Finishes very long and sappy, with suave, thoroughly ripe tannins. A superb 2009 Cote de Beaune wine to age. Both this wine and the Taillepieds appear to be in the process of shutting down now.

Heady and rich and really rather gorgeous. Very sumptuous.

The 2009 Volnay Clos Des Ducs is the only wine in this lineup that is playing its cards close to the vest. Weightless yet powerful, the Clos des Ducs impresses for its striking balance and poise. There is so much going on in the glass its hard to know where to start. Floral notes meld into hints of licorice, sweet red cherries and mint in this crystalline, totally gorgeous Volnay. Today the tannins are impossibly firm, so readers will have to be patient. This is far from an easygoing 2009

Though elegant, this is lean, delivering strawberry and raspberry notes matched to a silky texture and steely structure. Seems built for aging, with a spice and mineral aftertaste.
