Notes

This cuvée gets more and more impressive every year that goes by, the 2010 is one of the most exceptional examples there has been. It combines brooding crunchy fruit flavours with sweeter more floral and fruity notes. As accomplished as Fremiets has ever been, showing flavours of ripe red cherry, sloe, salt, stone and earth. Deep, powerful but fruity and precise. Fremiets is a stonier, steeper and higher vineyard than the Clos des Angles, it does not, therefore, produce wines quite so immediately seductive and aromatic, rather a little more brooding and serious.

Notes
Good bright, deep red. Musky, superripe aromas of jammy black fruits and roasted herbs. Round, sweet and superripe but still fresh in spite of its chocolatey quality. Finishes with powerful, chewy tannins that cut off the fruit today. This wine will need time to harmonize in bottle. D'Angerville bottled the 2010s between March and May of 2012 owing to the late malos.

Marquis d'Angerville

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.
