88.5 Points Robert Parker
Licorice, black cherry, leather, violets, and tamarind scent the Camille Giroud 2006 Volnay Taillepieds, which then comes to the palate firm, bitter-sweet, and mouth-filling. Between the tannins and the suggestion of underlying chalkiness this makes for a rather somber display, but it is impressively strong in the finish, and I suspect it will be worth following for at least half a dozen years.

Mild reduction detracts somewhat from the otherwise pretty nose of mostly red pinot fruits that precede the fresh, intense and firm mineral-infused flavors that are detailed, vibrant and linear on the equally serious finish that offers the hallmark austerity but also superb length. A terrific effort that is understated, balanced and pure. Drink from 2014.
