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. 

The Domaine Marquis d'Angerville has 4 hectares in the premier cru appellation named Champans, split between two parcels within this hilly vineyard with remarkable soil exposed southeast in the center of the Premiers Crus of Volnay . The floor rests on a rocky limestone bench in the top of the hill while the slope drops down and becomes redder and deeper.

The 2017 Volnay Les Champans 1er Cru is tasted from two barrels. It demonstrates wonderful grace and precision with mineral-infused cranberry and wild strawberry fruit. There is a sense of vitality and sophistication here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grain tannin. The oak is beautifully integrated notes of orange rind and even just a subtle touch of honey towards the relatively powerful and sustained finish that just feels audacious. Wonderful. 92-94

Once again there is a highly appealing freshness to the essence of red cherry raspberry and floral elements the latter of which is reflected by the sleek and relatively refined medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent punch on the beautifully persistent though markedly structured finish. This isn't as refined as the Caillerets but there is slightly better mid-palate density. 91-94

The 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Les Champans was showing especially well bursting with expressive aromas of rose petal ripe wild berries blood orange rind and dark chocolate. On the palate the wine is medium to full-bodied rich and textural with a layered core of concentrated fruit fine structuring tannins and a long finish. The suppleness of the vintage has tempered Champans' tendency to structural muscularity but not its fleshy fruit making for a delightful gourmand wine. 91-93
