Volnay 1er Cru Taillepieds, 2011, Domaine Nicolas Rossignol
This is arguably the most elegant wine in the range with airy, cool and highly restrained aromas of pure essence of red pinot fruit, exotic black tea and mineral nuances. There is equally impressive purity to the laser-like middle weight mineral-driven flavors that display stunning, indeed almost painful intensity that continues onto the superbly complex, long and impeccably well balanced finish.
This is austere, classy and absolutely textbook Taillepieds.
