Tasting Notes

This was one of those wines you kept in the mouth a little bit longer, knowing there was even more to tease out of it with the tongue. A real star of the tasting. Just beginning to show some nice maturity with good savoury notes. Delicious palate, savoury and sweet with earthy dried meat, desiccated fruits and a brilliant balance provided by its energetic acidity. Every sip a little different and a little better than the last. A truly fantastic wine.


Press Note:

Stephen Tanzer, vinous.com “Bright, full red. Very ripe, slightly high-toned raspberry aroma. Lush, fruit-driven and sweet, with a creamy texture that promises early drinkability. It's easy to believe that a plush wine like this will always be approachable. Finishes long and sweet, with very smooth tannins. (100% vendange entire)” RobertParker.com: “A strikingly marine and shrimp shell-tinged nose and palate with bright red currant and tart cherry fruit mark the de Montille 2008 Volnay Les Taillepieds, which allies white wine refreshment and minerality to intensely persistent fruit and a sort of turf-meets-surf finish that incorporates metaphorically dark, fungal forest floor shadings. Serving more for head-scratching than head-turning, this intriguing expression of its great site nonetheless incorporates a subtly satiny texture thanks to its ultra-fine tannins, and in the course of the coming 12-15 years one can expect its incipient sensuality to rise to its level of fascinating complexity, and for it to serve adeptly at table.” Drink now and over the next 4-6 years.
