Very lean for an 02, compared to other 02's I have had recently. But, that's the producer. A racy streak with lots of minerality, definitely a food wine, not a sipper. I think maybe I hit this a bit early...hold the other bottles for a couple more years.
I always love Taillepieds and this doesn't disappoint. Great wine in a great spot of maturity. Drinking really well with still beautiful cherry fruit but a lot of iron and minerality especially on the finish. Silky smooth texture.
Todd Waldmann comes to town and we eat and drink well at Suzanne's. (Suzanne & Kenny's): A much more feminine wine than the Gouges and drinking well. It's nicely aromatic with red fruit tones, stony minerality and spice aromas. Nicely juicy, but not too overt acidity keeps things fresh and lively on the palate. The red fruit is savory and the minerals have nice crunch to them. Drinking well now, but there's no hurry whatsoever here. Low A-.

(Marquis d'Angerville Volnay Taillepieds) (From magnum) Medium, medium-plus cherry red. The nose starts in a very mineral way with hints of cedar eventually giving way to red berries and a slow build-up of coffee. The concentrated palate bursts with explosive red fruits and plenty of grainy tannin - but there’s no hint of astringency - the acidity pulling you into a long finish that has a rather darker fruit complexion. Very accomplished and very tasty.
