"Terrific Delineation" -Burghound
2014 Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Taillepieds

Posted by Ian McFadden

We don't get to offer d'Angerville's Taillepieds very often.

It's one of his wines that tends to disappear quickly from the market. D'Angerville's holdings in Taillepieds are half that of Ducs and a quarter of Champans.

The holdings are only part of the story. Taillepieds is one of the d'Angerville 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 with an intricate depth. In 2014, the site really shines.

Across the board, d’Angerville’s 2014s show brilliant complexity and saturating minerality. The vintage's low yields amplified these qualities in a dazzling way. It's easy to place d'Angerville's among 2014's best collections in the Côte de Beaune.

The 2014 Taillepieds is blazingly clear. Burghound's note captures the wine really well: "There is terrific delineation to the chiseled and markedly stony flavors." The 2014 is a wine of impressive focus, persistence and elegance.

This is definitely an offer that I don't feel a need to belabor. Taillepieds is one of d'Angerville's top wines and a personal favorite. This is a very small parcel that I expect to sell out quickly. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.

2014 Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Taillepieds

Special Bottle Price: $149.95

Burghound: "The wood treatment is a bit more prominent though it remains reasonably subtle as it easily allows the cool, elegant and equally spicy aromas of various dark berries, plum and rose petal. There is terrific delineation to the chiseled and markedly stony flavors that also possess fine mid-palate concentration, all wrapped in a sleek, focused and gorgeously persistent finish. This firmly structured effort is notably less youthfully austere than it usually is though don't mistake that for it necessarily being more accessible young."
