Decanter, 95 Points 

"This has a ripe plummy fruit, with lots of depth from the notes of spice and smoke, and a firm core, yet absolutely no rough edges at all, just a polished elegance that lingers interminably on the palate. The de Montille family is from Volnay and this holding is among the central, historic parcels of the domaine. There are two parcels: the upper part, which is partly destemmed, and the lower section with more limestone gravel in the soil, where the oldest vines are found. This latter fruit is always fermented as 100% whole-cluster." 

Vinous, 93-95 Points 

"The 2020 Volnay Les Taillepieds 1er Cru comes from two parcels is 90% whole cluster. Brambly red berry fruit is mingling with black pepper, clove and touches of undergrowth. The palate is medium-bodied with quite succulent tannins, more rondeur here than the other Volnays, plush and quite luxuriant wiht a sensual and very pure finish. Superb." 

Burghound, 92-94 Points 

"A ripe but cool, pure and airy nose freely offers up its notes of plum liqueur, violet, lavender and wet stone. There is impressive intensity to the chiseled medium-bodied flavors that possess very fine mid-palate density as well as an almost aggressive minerality on the moderately austere, compact, long and balanced finale. This is excellent and historically, is a wine that always ages well. *Burghound Sweet Spot Outstanding!*"

Jasper Morris, 92-94 Points 

"90% whole cluster. Imperial purple. This wine has the ideal balance between whole bunch freshness and the fruit of the vintage, which does not have an exaggerated ripeness here. Tight firm finish, crunchy with dry tannins which should resolve without difficulty given a little time." 

Alcohol: 13% 

Made with organic grapes
