Arguably the vineyard for which the De Montille family are best known, Les Taillepieds produced only one barrel in 2016. Known for favoring balance over power and extraction, these wines are classic expressions of Burgundy, produced in the most natural way possible with an impressive ability to age. The team has farmed organically since 1995 and biodynamically since 2005. Today, their wines are certified by Ecocert.

Vinous, 91-94 Points

"(vinified entirely with whole clusters and aged in 35% new oak; the average vine age here "is 65 years and the soil features gravel on limestone): Bright medium-deep red. Deeply pitched, fruit-driven aromas of black raspberry and dark cherry, plus a hint of smoky minerality. Wonderfully plush yet lively, displaying more volume and depth than the Mitans. Lovely silky Volnay without any impression of undue weight. Really fills the mouth and echoes on the finish while maintaining superb vivacity. Here the acidity is ripe and the broad tannins distinctly suave and fine-grained. This is showing beautifully considering that it only finished its malolactic fermentation in September."

Organic and biodynamically grown.
