Here Today, Gone Tomorrow:
2019 D'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Taillepieds

Posted by Ian McFadden

D'Angerville's 2019s should not be missed.

Whenever the vintage comes up, people always mention d'Angerville as one of the greats.

A few weeks ago, we offered d'Angerville's 2019 Caillerets and Ducs. The response was intense. The Taillepieds is more limited. 

Taillepieds is one of d'Angerville's wines that people get obsessed with. There's a group of people who hold Taillepieds even more dear than Ducs.

Taillepieds is all about raciness - it's full of stony minerality and has an intricate depth. The Taillepieds plot sits just above Champans and is very steeply sloped with poor, rocky soil.

The 2019 is a beautiful example of Taillepieds. It has a sleek finesse along with serious length and impact. The palate is a beautiful weave of luminous red fruits and spice with an overall impression of fine calibration. 

I'm going to bring this to a close. D'Angerville is one of our favorite producers and we rarely get to offer Taillepieds. This is a very modest parcel. Word is definitely out on d'Angerville's 2019s. I'm expecting a rapid sell out.

Burghound: "A ripe, pure, and airy and elegant nose combines notes of plum, black raspberry and spice with soft earth and floral nuances. The mouthfeel of the medium-bodied flavors is almost gossamer fine yet there is no lack of punch to the strikingly long and again, beautifully balanced finale. This isn't as dense as the Champans or the Clos des Ducs though it does possess that ineffable quality of breed. This is pretty much textbook Taillepieds."
