Goedhuis, December 2011
Only 50 metres from the Clos des Ducs vineyard, this wine is a real beauty concentrating on sweetness of red berry fruits . A wonderfully balanced wine, with tremendous harmony and fine texture.
Burghound, April 2012,
This is at once cooler, fresher and more elegant than the Clos des Angles with its ultra-pure red pinot and extract of stone suffused nose. There is fine richness and excellent mid-palate volume that buffers the otherwise firm but ripe tannins before terminating in a lacy and chalky finish. The minerality is so strong that this has an almost Chablis-like salinity to it. 2020+.
Domaine Marquis d'Angerville
Arriving at the family Château in Volnay and standing in the famed Clos des Ducs overlooking the village and its other 1er crus below always gives me a huge thrill. This is everything that Burgundy is all about; history dating back to 1507, and back to 1804 for the Angerville family and their ancestors, great breeding in some of the finest vineyards in the Cote d'Or and finally anability to make Pinot Noir at its very purist and best.
A red wine appellation only, wines from Volnay might be considered the most revered of southern Burgundy. They have been celebrated since the 18th century for their delicacy. But they are not fruit forward like those of Beaune or Chorey Lès Beaune nor have the brooding structure of Pommard.Instead, they have superb linearity, focus and poise while sheathed in velvety tannin. This slightly reticent personality comes out even more with a bit of age, though some can be approached very young. There are no grand cru vineyards in Volnay, but there are some excellent premier cru examples including Volnay Les Champans and Volnay Les Caillerets. Chardonnay grown in the shared Santenots vineyard must be labelled as Meursault.
