The 2018 Volnay Taillepieds 1er Cru, from a parcel bought way back in 1775, was showing just a soupçon of sur-maturite on the nose; this seems to ebb away with time, though the bouquet remains extroverted and high-toned, featuring cassis and figgy notes. The palate is rounded on the entry with supple tannins, good structure and a fleshy, damson-tinged finish. I suspect this will be best enjoyed in its youth.

Neal Martin. Tasting date: November 2019
