This rich red starts out round and supple, offering black cherry and blackberry flavors, with a hint of tar. Its tannins are solid and beefy, yet there seems to be adequate fruit to balance them. Long, ironlike aftertaste. Best from 2016 through 2035.

This is notably ripe yet the aromatic profile is composed of relatively high-toned and cool red berry fruit that is liberally laced with wet stone notes that are even more prominent on the beautifully well-delineated and precise flavors that culminate in a serious, mouth coating and moderately austere finish. This is impressive and very much built to age. A classic Taillepieds.

Volnay has been prized for its finesse and bouquet. In medieval times it is claimed that Louis XIV demanded the entire harvest of 1477 for the royal court. This wine has a light garnet color with delicate aromas of violets and ripe raspberries. The flavors are a combination of cherries, raspberries and spice, each one expressed in delicate layers. It would pair beautifully with duck confit and sweet potatoes layered with apples and cinnamon.
