Domaine Marquis d’Angerville lies at the very heart of Volnay, both geographically and emotionally. Indeed, the Clos des Ducs, one of the prime vineyards of the village, is Guillaume d’Angerville’s back garden. The domaine consists of 14 hectares of vines. These wines are Volnays of reference: elegantly perfumed on the nose, with layered, textured palates. They manage to combine finesse with architectural complexity and power. Just occasionally, they display a sense of weightlessness which takes your breath away, the soaring flavours seemingly borne from thin air. At the top end, they both demand and repay substantial cellaring.
