Wine Advocate, 94-96 Points
"The 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs is a terrific wine in the making, unfurling in the glass with a complex bouquet of rose petals, ripe red berries, orange rind, raw cocoa, grilled squab and sweet soil tones. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and succulent, its vibrant core of fruit framed by fine, powdery tannins. The finish is long and perfumed."
Pairing Suggestions: Roast White Meats, Meaty Fish, Red Sauce, Braised Things
About the Producer:
"Nothing demonstrates red Burgundy’s magic like great Volnay, with its enveloping aromatic complexity, silky texture and tremendous aging potential. And for a half century, the name “Jacques d’Angerville” was synonymous with the greatest Volnays.
From 1952 until his death in 2003, he made his family’s domaine, Marquis d’Angerville, the village’s icon. His secret was that he had no secret; his methods were, in the words of Burghound’s Allen Meadows, “minimalist in the extreme.” Relying on great sites and old vines of a unique clone, “Pinot d’Angerville,” he proved that great wines were made in the vineyard.
By all accounts, not much has changed in the cellar since Guillaume D’Angerville took over the reins of the venerated domaine upon his father's death. After a career spent in banking overseas, Guillaume returned to his childhood home and assumed the winemaking reins in the blazing hot summer of 2003.
Initially, the world had a wait-and-see attitude, wondering if the D’Angerville magic would continue under Guillaume. By the time his 2005s were released, that question had been answered. Today, demand for D’Angerville wines could be even greater than in Jacques’ day—testament to the enduring legacy of one of the great domaines of Burgundy."
