Quite explosive whiff of dried and crushed cherries. Very flowery and perfumed with hints of an autumn beach, sea grass, wood and salt-wet pebbles. The smell is truly kaleidoscopic. Taste is a little subdued but also brilliantly complex and layered. Quite astringent at the moment with a bitter tang like chewing on fresh rosemary. I find tannins and a mineral chalkiness to be hard to separate atm. Very long. This is a light Ducs in shear mass but in my eyes unusually gifted and can't be beaten in loveliness. I love the 2007 Volnays and this may not be among the most open I've drunk but it's a complete wine for me.
Surprisingly open and generous. This is a perfumed and flowery Taillepieds with flavors and smells of fresh meat, black cherries, gunshots and some oak. Very fine tannins and a full but linear mouthful in a riesling kind of way. Just fabulous and utterly adorable.
Rich, complex and deep aromas of violets, gun smoke, red berries and quite much oak. The wine is balanced with much fruit and a grapey and dusty mouth feel. Concentrated and a little tight with good acid and tannin backbone. This is very nice in a modern but delicious style, although not wanting in complexity, easily pinpoint as Volnay with the trademark minerality.
