Aging:Aged in barrel
Tasting:Perfumed, vibrant aromas with gorgeous layers of concentration on the palate, this is the star of Ballot-Millot's 2015 reds. The name [tailler (cut) + pieds (feet)] suggests that the steepness of slope and the sharpness of the rocks have conspired over the years to cut many a foot.
