"The d'Angerville 2006 Volnay Taillepieds tastes entirely consistent with the top-notch 2006 performances of this site in other hands. A lovely nose ripe black fruits, walnut oil, dark chocolate, and bitter-sweet floral perfume in the nose put me slightly in mind of a really ripe Cabernet Franc. Palpably dense on the palate – its palate-staining black fruits accented with bitter fruit pit, crushed stone, dark chocolate, and peat – this nonetheless preserves a fine sense of vivacity and lift that carries into a pungently-persistent, chalk-, peat-, and white pepper-dominated finish. This rich yet firmly structure, low-toned yet refreshing Taillepieds promises further complexity and elegance for those who give it a few years of bottle age, and I suspect it will hold well for more than a decade."
