  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($82) Bright, full red-ruby. Musky raspberry, smoke and licorice on the nose. More tightly wound than the Cent-Vignes, with dark berry and black cherry flavors complicated by bitter chocolate, menthol and minerals. Finishes with fine tannins and very good length. A more medicinal and backward wine, in need of at least four or five years of cellaring.

    A very ripe nose of black and blue berry fruit aromas nuanced by obvious minerality and hints of underbrush complement perfectly the impeccably balanced and concentrated flavors that explode on the sweet and hyper intense finish that goes on and on. This is a big Volnay built on a base of stone and the intense minerality defines the '05 Taillepieds from stem to stern as it were. In a word, gorgeous.

    Elegant yet intense, with black currant and blackberry aromas and flavors accented by vanilla and coffee. It's juicy and the tannins are ripe and integrated. Long, energetic finish.

    The 2005 Volnay Taillepieds (of which there will be around 175 cases) offers an impressive account of this great site, leading with notes of incense, fresh black raspberry, and high-toned maraschino, then comes to the palate with bloody raw meat character, crystalline black raspberry fruit, and a saturation of fine tannin. This really grips, with fascinating meat, mineral and fruit persistence. One slight concern is that a hint of heat not catch up with it.
