Volnay 1er Cru "Taillepieds" 2014, Bitouzet-Prieur
The "Taillepieds" vineyard is just below the village of Volnay on the steeper slope and sits next to one of the other top tier premier cru vineyards, Clos des Chênes which Domaine Bitouzet-Prieur also produces. This 2014 Volnay-Taillepieds has a wonderful raspberry and cassis nose which is very giving and enthralling. A punchy start on the palate softens into a very pleasant, delicate finish. Volnay is known as a feminine wine and I couldn't help but think of Rachel Weisz whilst tasting this Taillepieds. Classic beauty. Scores 26-28/30 for a Volnay premier cru.
