(Volnay “Taillepieds”- Domaine Clos de la Chapelle) The Domaine Clos de la Chapelle’s beautiful 2017 Taillepieds is an absolutely textbook example of this great terroir, as one might expect in a great vintage and sixty-five-plus year-old vines tucked in between d’Angerville and de Montille in the heart and soul of the vineyard. The stunning nose soars from the glass in a nascently complex blend of sweet black cherries and plums, dark chocolate, fresh nutmeg and other delicate spice tones, dark soil tones, gamebird, woodsmoke and a bit of vanillin oak. With extended aeration there is a touch of Bonnes-Mares-like heather tones as well here, which is utterly gorgeous. On the palate the wine is deep, full, focused and properly structured, with a beautiful core of fruit, great soil signature, ripe, well-integrated tannins and a long, tangy and perfectly balanced finish. Great juice. (Drink between 2030-2090).John Gilman | 94+ JG(Domaine Clos de la Chapelle Volnay "Les Taillepieds" 1er Cru Red) Relatively deeply colored. Once again there is plenty of wood influence to the aromas of menthol, spice, orange peel and tea scents. The slightly bigger and more powerful medium weight flavors exhibit even more minerality on the tautly muscular and beautifully persistent finish that reflects the typical youthful austerity of a classic Taillepieds. Excellent. (Drink starting 2027).Burghound | 93 BHThe 2017 Volnay Taillepieds 1er Cru has a well-defined bouquet of red cherries, cranberry and undergrowth scents; this becomes more floral with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied, fresh and vibrant, with supple tannins, crisp acidity and a vibrant, quite mineral-driven, symmetrical finish. Classy. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting.Vinous Media | 93 VMThere’s quite a dark, stony edge to the nose here with darker cherries. This is very plush and succulent feel with a sinewy feel to the tannins that carry plenty of rich and ripe red to darker-cherry flavor. Fresh, cherry-pip tang at the finish. Needs a little time. Try from 2021.James Suckling | 92 JS
(Maison Louis Jadot Volnay "Clos des Chênes" 1er Cru Red) This too is aromatically very pretty with its perfumed aromas of red and dark cherry, violet and sandalwood wisps. There is very fine volume to the powerful and mineral-driven larger-scaled flavors that exude a refreshing salinity on the balanced, long and built-to-age finish. This is potentially terrific and a wine that should age extremely well and note that it’s going to need at least 6 to 10 years first. (Drink starting 2034).Burghound | 91-94 BHThe 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (Domaine Louis Jadot) opens in the glass with notes of cherries, red berries, orange rind, raw cocoa and spices. Medium to full-bodied, ample and lively, this was also promisingly tightly wound when I visited, revealing a bright spine of acidity and chalky tannins that will flesh out with further élevage.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 91-93+ RPThe 2019 Volnay Clos des Chênes 1er Cru has a precocious bouquet featuring ample red cherries, kirsch and light balsamic aromas, hints of potpourri emerging with time. The palate is sweet on the entry, offering candied red fruit laced with orange zest and vanilla pod. There remains some new oak to be integrated, though this possesses a lovely silky mouthfeel and shows tenderness on the aftertaste. Very fine.Vinous Media | 91-93 VM
The domaine owns only 0.08ha of Volnay village, so the estate vines are supplemented with purchased grapes that they destem and ferment themselves, and to preserve the silky character of the wine, no new casks are used in the maturation. This parcel is located on the Pommard side, which gives it some grippy tannins on the finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2029.Decanter | 92 DEC
Moderate wood surrounds the ripe blend of both red and black raspberry, exotic tea and pretty violet scents. The caressing, round and delicious medium weight flavors that possess good but not special density before firming up noticeably on the austere and much more mineral-driven finale.Burghound | 90-93 BHThe 2020 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes (Domaine Louis Jadot) reveals aromas of rich berries, orange rind, peonies and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, with a lively core of fruit, ripe but firm tannins and a nicely defined finish, it will demand some bottle age.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 91-93 RPThe 2020 Volnay Clos des Chênes 1er Cru comprises of one 456-litre barrel this year. It has a very well-defined bouquet with seamlessly integrated oak and impressive mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, fine delineation, just a little chewiness on the entry but there is tension interwoven into this Volnay from start to finish, plus great persistency. Superb.Vinous Media | 91-93 VM
Here too there are ample spice elements adding breadth to the poached plum and black cherry liqueur aromas. The succulent, round and delicious flavors possess good if not truly special mid-palate density before concluding in a moderately austere, balanced and firmly structured finale. Patience advised here too as this powerful effort should age effortlessly.Burghound | 90-92 BHNotes of cherries, sweet berries, raw cocoa and spices preface the 2020 Volnay 1er Cru Santenots (Domaine Louis Jadot), a medium to full-bodied, lively and vibrant wine, built around tangy acids and powdery tannins. As readers may remember, this parcel is situated quite near the route nationale, from the lower part of this large premier cru.Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 89-91 RPThe 2020 Volnay Les Santenots 1er Cru has a concentrated nose, one that feels a little "hemmed in", does not quite flow like the other Volnays from Jadot. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, quite bold and muscular, but missing the elegance that I seek from this vineyard.Vinous Media | 88-90 VM
