Description

The Ballot-Millot estate has been located in Meursault since the seventeenth century. Charles Ballot, who took over the reins in 2000, outlawed chemical weeding and introduced soil ploughing. By modernising the company's production tools, Charles Ballot can offer cuvées of great regularity on prestigious Burgundy appellations. With plots located in Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet, Volnay, Pommard, and Beaune, the wines of this historic house are gaining ground and come alongside the most beautiful references of this terroir.

Taille Pieds (sometimes "Taillepieds" or "Les Taillepieds") is a highly regarded Premier Cru climat of the Volnay appellation in Burgundy's Côte de Beaune sub-region. It is planted entirely to Pinot Noir and lies a stone's throw southwest of Volnay village.

Review

A super-floral nose seems to have every floral element in the book including a perfumed hint of gardenia that adds a touch of elegance to the exotically spicy aromas of red and black raspberry. The pure and almost painfully intense flavours are like rolling tiny stones around in the mouth while delivering outstanding depth and persistence on the overtly austere, serious, and compact finale that leaves zero doubt that this beauty is built-to-age. In a word, terrific.
