Rich, deep and plush on the palate. Bursting with energetic dark cherry fruits and fabulous length on the finish. Charming, accomplished and complete. Drink from 2009.
Reviews & Scores
Medium red, still a bit hazy at the tail end of the secondary fermentation. Fruit-driven aromas of cherry and raspberry. Fatter, sweeter and larger than the Cailleret, with very good mouth coverage, but a bit less racy. The ripe acids are more apparent on the back half. This has the stuffing to support its moderate tannins. Villette says he normally presents the Cailleret after the Champans but not this year. (The Taillepieds was barely halfway through its malo and awkward to taste, but already showed a silky texture and considerable sweetness.) 87-89 points
