Domaine Marquis d´Angerville, Volnay Premier Cru "Taillepieds" 1997 - 0,75L
The Taillepieds parcel is located on the heights of the Volnay hillside. The soils are poor and rocky, hence the name "Taillepieds", sharp pebbles that quickly wear out the winegrowers' shoes. The strong thought and the sunshine bring a lot of finesse and elegance to the wines from this parcel.
The wine is very fine in the mouth with notes of red and black fruits which evolve towards notes of undergrowth after a few years. Remarkable finish on spices.
