The lieu-dit known as "Les Taillepieds" takes its name from the steep site which is covered with sharp gravel on which winegrowers slashed their feet while digging into the earth. It faces east and south on a mid-slope composed of light brown clay and gravel.
Volnay "Les Taillepieds" is a model of aromatic purity, precision and of structural exactness. The nose is highly defined, often floral and always mineral and spicy. The mouthfeel is robust with a tannic frame that is strict, dense and mineral.
