(from 35+ year old vines). This is unusually expressive for young Taillepieds, which is often the most reserved wine in the range, featuring a ripe mélange of red and blue pinot fruit plus violet and rose notes that gracefully introduce sweet, dusty and intense flavors brimming with minerality on the focused, racy and vibrant finish. Like the Champans, this is notably austere, which is typical and will require at least a decade to be at its best. Terrific. (90-93)/2016+
