Domaine Marquis d’Angerville is one of Burgundy's most sought after estates, and perfectly exemplifies the identity of Volnay. D'Angerville's list of holdings touches all of the village’s great terroirs, including one of the most picturesque vineyards in Volnay, the monopole of the estate, Clos des Ducs. The domaine started bottling its own production in the 1920s after the current Marquis’ grandfather, Sem d’Angerville, challenged the blending methods of the negociants’ and then began bottling his own wines instead of selling them his grapes. D'Angerville was one of the first Burgundy domains to do this, making history and encouraging the future of the region at the same time. Today the estate is led by Guillaume d’Angerville, farmed immaculately, and is producing some of the best wines in the entire Cote d’Or.

Burghound Like the Bourgogne there is just enough reduction present to render the nose difficult to assess. On the plus side there is both more elegance and refinement to the utterly delicious and vibrant flavors that display a lovely minerality on the firm, vibrant and intense finish that is very well-balanced. Once again however note well that this is not without a certain amount of muscularity and thus at least 5 to 7 years of bottle age will be necessary.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Volnay 1er Cru, a blend of Volnay Les Pitures and Les Mitans (the latter partially uprooted in recent years so the blend comprises mainly of the former) saw about 15% new oak. It has a very intense bouquet with dark cherries, blackcurrant, violet and cassis, quite opaque at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is certainly good concentration here with black rather than red fruit, noticeable salinity with a sappy, though slightly introverted finish that should gain more personality by the time of bottling. This is an excellent Volnay.
