Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 94
As it almost always is in its youth, this is a linear wine but the '02 ratchets up the minerality and that sense of almost exacting precision and detail. The tannins are not quite as firm as those of the Taillepieds yet here there is another level of elegance and purity with absolutely perfect harmony and a subtle, understated, almost Zen-like reserve. In short, this is a classic Clos des Ducs that will rival such memorable vintages as 1978, 1985, 1991 1993, 1996 and 1999. If you love Clos des Ducs, don't miss the '02.
RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2002 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs has meliorated since I last tasted it back in 2010. Here, it has a really quite entrancing bouquet, that transparency intact but the fruit enhanced with time: strawberry and red currant, almost a "flinty" mineralité underneath. The palate is very poised and has gained a little complexity, linear and regal. It has a crystalline finish, graceful and effervescent with touch of orange zest lingering on the aftertaste. Excellent.

The domaine started bottling its own production in the 1920s after the current Marquis’ grandfather, Sem d’Angerville, stood up to the negociants’ corrupt blending practices at that time. As a result and in defiance of them, he became one of the first Burgundy domains to estate bottle their wines. 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. A list of their holdings in their home village of Volnay touches all of its great terroirs, including one of the most picturesque vineyards in Volnay and a monopole of the estate, Clos des Ducs.

Cotes de Beaune, Burgundy

On the hillsides between Pommard and Meursault, Volnay is one of two villages in the Côte de Beaune of Burgundy that is recognized for its extraordinary Pinot Noir. Pommard is the other; the rest of the villages are most known for some of the most exceptional Chardonnay in the world. While Volnay Pinot Noir tends to be light in color and more delicate than that of Pommard, they typically stand on par with each other in regards to quality and demand.

Volnay can’t claim any Grands Crus vineyards but more than half of it has achieved Premier Cru status. Volnay Premiers Crus vineyards stretch across the entire village from northeast to southwest, abutting and actually falling “into” Meursault. Where they merge is a vineyard called Les Santenots. Pinot Noir grows in this Meursault Premier Cru but since that village is most associated with stellar whites, the Pinot Noir from Les Santenots, takes the name Volnay Santenots. Immediately above it are Volnay’s other prized Premier Cru, Le Cailleret, Champans, Clos des Chênes and Le Cailleret.

Volnay Pinot Noir are earthy with red or blue fruit. Aromas such as smoke, herbs, forest, cocoa and spice are common and on the palate they are gorgeous and concentrated with finesse but won’t truly charm you without some age.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
