Bright, full red. Highly complex, pretty aromas of raspberry and flowers hint at the sweetness of the vintage. Lively, nuanced and deep, with a sappy minerality that would have had me guessing Côte de Nuits. Really resounds on the broad, sweet, very long finish. This has delivered on its early potential and is an outstanding effort for the vintage. (ST)
As intensely mineral driven as the '07 Mitans is, the Taillepieds is the stoniest wine in the range by a fair margin as the phrase 'extract of liquid limestone' applies. Here the nose is also intensely floral but it's even more tightly integrated with the cool, pure and airy red berry fruit aromas that introduce superbly detailed middle weight flavors that are built on a base of chalk and stone while culminating in a driving and youthfully austere finish that is akin to rolling small pebbles around in your mouth. A classic Taillepieds built to age. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding*
Very light and fresh. Lots of fruit and even more acidity. Racy. Quite complex. Lots more development to come, I think. Super clean. (JR)
