Clos des Ducs, the great d'Angerville monopole, enjoys the highest elevation, on a steep, chalky slope. The "Duc" is a always a wine of grand cru intensity, with an intoxicatingly mineral perfume of rose petals, cherry and redcurrant.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs, the famous monopole of the domaine that ostensibly forms Guillaume d'Angerville's back garden, unequivocally possesses the most complex bouquet this year with mineral-drenched black fruit, briary, cinnamon, cold Alpine stream, strawberry pastilles and orange zest. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. This is very pure and focused, a fine backbone here but there is enormous length as it fans out. There is something noble about this wine…or should I say, ducal?
