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. This rare Meursault Santenots is known for expressing intense minerality, and d'Angerville's offering is from a parcel of 30+ year old vines in Les Plures.

BurghoundThe rich, caressing and solidly concentrated flavors possess plenty of sappy dry extract before terminating in a citrus peel-tinged finale. This is not particularly refined but I like the character and note that this should also drink well young if desired. 89-91

DecanterThe Meursault Santenots is extrovert and expressive this year, with a bouquet of white flowers, peach and grapefruit. It leaves a full-bodied, pure palate impression that displays rather gourmand amplitude before finishing with a nice chalky grip. Drinking 2017 - 2025.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Meursault 1er Cru Santenots has a crisp, slightly resinous, dried flower bouquet that is well defined, almost Puligny-like in style thanks to its correctness. The palate is well balanced with an attractive creaminess on the entry, lightly honeyed with a clean, slightly viscous finish that lingers nicely in the mouth.
