Winemaker Notes

The Volnay Les Taillepieds it is a model of aromatic purity, precision and rigor in construction. The definition of the nose is precise, pure, often floral, always mineral and spicy. The palate is structured with a very tight, dense, mineral tannic structure.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 93
Vinous

Reduced aromas of cherry and licorice. Supple, broad and densely packed, with musky cherry, spice and herb flavors deepened by saline minerality. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and excellent breadth.

Rating: 90-93

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Les Taillepieds comes from a 1.51-hectare parcel of vines on pebbly brown limestone soils. It possesses a complex, almost savory bouquet, with warm slate scents emerging with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, good acidity and a digestif element in the background. Demonstrating impressive depth with an herbaceous finish, this Volnay Taillepieds fans out nicely and leaves a saline aftertaste. This is Volnay should offer great pleasure over its first 10 years, possibly more.

Rating: (90-92)

JS 92
James Suckling

Quite meaty and modern reductive nose with plenty of oak spices. The fruit smells ripe, touching into dark, rich cherries and plums with hints of graphite. The oak is assertive on the palate, ripe tannins roll in layers, and this twists into riper plum and teacake territory.

The Domaine de Montille was established in Volnay in the middle of the XVIII century. Today it farms 20 hectares of vines, essentially Premier and Grand Crus, mainly in the Côte de Beaune but also in the Côte de Nuits. The domaine produces about 8,000 cases covering 20 appellations. During the XX century, Hubert de Montille wrote the finest pages of the domaine’s history. The lawyer and his children have always strived to return their domaine, which had declined in the past, to the stature it once enjoyed. Furthermore, it is thanks to Hubert that during the 1960’s the domaine became renowned around the world.

Cotes de Beaune, Burgundy

On the hillsides between Pommard and Meursault, Volnay is one of two villages in the Côte de Beaune that is recognized for its extraordinary Pinot Noir. Pommard is the other; the rest of the villages are most known for some of the most exceptional Chardonnay in the world. While Volnay Pinot Noir tends to be light in color and more delicate than that of Pommard, they typically stand on par with each other in regards to quality and demand.

Volnay can’t claim any Grands Crus vineyards but more than half of it has achieved Premier Cru status. Volnay Premiers Crus vineyards stretch across the entire village from northeast to southwest, abutting and actually falling “into” Meursault. Where they merge is a vineyard called Les Santenots. Pinot Noir grows in this Meursault Premier Cru but since that village is most associated with stellar whites, the Pinot Noir from Les Santenots, takes the name Volnay Santenots. Immediately above it are Volnay’s other prized Premier Cru, Le Cailleret, Champans, Clos des Chênes and Le Cailleret.

Volnay Pinot Noir are earthy with red or blue fruit. Aromas such as smoke, herbs, forest, cocoa and spice are common and on the palate they are gorgeous and concentrated with finesse but won’t truly charm you without some age.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
