About This Wine

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.

The unfortunate fact is that d’Angerville’s Taillepieds parcel is half the size of their Ducs holdings and a quarter of Champans, making it one of the hardest of d'Angerville's wines to find in quantity.

By any standard, d'Angerville's 2016s are stunning. As Burghound writes, "While d'Angerville rarely misses, I was particularly taken with the quality I found here; indeed the word classic would aptly describe their 2016s." The 2016 red Burgundies show an incredible concentration with a cool, mineral-laden profile. D'Angerville thrived under these conditions.

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 2016 Taillepieds is a masterpiece. It's rare that a wine hits this equation of balance and nuanced complexity. The energy, detail, and class are jaw-dropping.

This is not to be missed.
