De Montille Volnay Premier Cru Taillpieds Still France Burgundy Volnay Pinot Noir 1995

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Still very tight on the nose, one has to coax out the slightly stemmy wild cherry toned fruit. With air a more sunburned fruit tone emerges with very fine soisbois and floral, almost rose, accents. In the mouth this is very acid driven with burnished cherry fruit and a touch of dried strawberry but the palate remains a fairly tight ball of fruit and fine tannins. The finish reveals mineral and sousbois notes with emerging length and a subtle finale. 93pts

Beautiful nose of bright ripe cherries and fall spice. A full bodied wine with plenty of fresh acidity, leads with bright cranberry and cherry fruit and mellows out into spice, some medicine and a hint of oak.

Roasted strawberries and dried cranberries on the nose. Very silky and smooth progresses nicely with nice hay, barnyard and twig flavors. Nice complex finish. Lots of finesse. Slightly hollow center and the age is showing, but this is a very nice savory wine.
