Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Marquis d'Angerville, Volnay, Clos des Angles, 1er Cru, 2015

Soft, rounded delicate flavours, although with a complexity over and above that of the village Volnay. Scented notes of ripe summer berry, damson and victoria plum with a gentle creamy texture. Flavoursome and with great Volnay charm, there is a certain substance to it without being too full-bodied. The best Clos des Angles the domaine have made. This walled vineyard sits at the beginning of the slope on the Beaune side of Volnay and was purchased by Guillaume d’Angervile in 2006, making it the Domaine’s first vineyard expansion since 1906.

The 2017 Volnay Clos des Angles 1er Cru shows quite a bit of reduction on the nose tasting it from barrel. The palate is more compact than the Volnay Premier Cru, more muscular, although I find it needs a little more grace towards the finish. Give this two or three years once in bottle.

Marquis d'Angerville

A truly great Burgundian domaine with an illustrious history that began in 1804, Domaine Marquis d'Angerville first made a name for itself in the early 1900s when Sem, Marquis d'Angerville, pioneered domaine-bottled Burgundy alongside his friend Henri Gouges. The estate was inherited by his son Jacques in 1952, who took the domaine to ever greater heights over an extraordinary and brilliant career spanning 52 vintages. In 2003 the current proprietaire, Guillaume, Marquis d'Angerville, took over after his father Jacques' tragic and premature passing.

This wonderful Volnay estate Domaine spans 15 ha in total, of which 12 are devoted to Volnay - the vast majority of which are Premiers Crus. The Domaine's vineyards are no more than 15 minutes' walk from each other, yet the resulting wines boast such different personalities. These are Burgundies that not only offer immense pleasure and drinkability, they also represent a veritable masterclass in the effect of terroir on wine. The jewel in the domaine's crown is, without question, the Clos des Ducs, Monopole. One of the great crus of the Cote de Beaune, the earliest records of Clos des Ducs, can be found in 1507. The size of the Clos then is exactly the same as it is today 2.15 ha or 52 ouvrees

Guillaume is meticulous and shows an unstinting commitment to producing the best wine he can whilst staying faithful to Volnay's special terroir. The vine growing and winemaking is based on the philosophy of respecting and working with nature. The Domaine's move to Bio-dynamic viticulture in 2006 is central to this, a process that began with the appointment the year before of the talented Francois Duvivier as regisseur, to oversee this conversion. Rigorous manual work is carried out in the vineyard, therefore, whilst the winemaking is as gentle and respectful to the wines as possible. These are polished Volnays of purity, precision and style, nothing is over-done or out of balance, extractions are soft and new oak is no more than it needs to be, a maximum of 20%. The characteristics of grape, vintage and terroir resonate brightly through each wine.
