Marquis d'Angerville

In our opinion, Volnay is the finest red wine appellation in the Cote de Beaune and Marquis d'Angerville is the finest producer of Volnay. The domaine makes wines which somehow combine the ripe and rich dark fruits of the Cote de Beaune with the breed and finesse of the wines of the Cote de Nuits.

As with all the great domaines of Burgundy, the terroir is all important, giving each wine its own distinct personality year in, year out. The top wine is of course the Clos des Ducs but the florality of the Champans, the richness of the Caillerets or the purity of the Fremiets should not be missed.

Please find below an extensive offer of the domaine's wines including a Clos des Ducs which is just starting to drink and four other vineyards from the superlative 2010 and 2009 vintages. We have used notes from our favourite Burgundy critic, Allen Meadows of Burghound.com. All the wines will be available in two weeks.



3 cases of 12 bottles Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs, Marquis d'Angerville 2002
£2200 In Bond per case of 12 bottles
‘Even after 10 years this remains almost as primary as when it was bottled as there are no secondary hints in evidence on the elegant and pure red berry fruit and stone-infused nose. The detailed, intense and strongly mineral-driven medium-bodied flavors possess a sophisticated mouth feel while coating the palate with dry extract. There is a noticeably firm acid spine on the moderately austere and gorgeously persistent finish. This is a distinctly understated vintage for Clos des Ducs that seems to be evolving at a glacially slow pace. Tasted twice recently with similar notes. 93 points.’ Allen Meadows, Burghound
 
1 case of 12 bottles Volnay 1er Cru Champans, Marquis d'Angerville 2010
£840 In Bond per case of 12 bottles
‘Initially there is a touch of reduction though aggressive swirling liberates the admirably pure, fresh and elegant nose of a plenitude of floral notes along with a ripe mix of red berries and iron, stone and earth hints. There is good power and excellent complexity to the wonderfully well-delineated medium weight flavors that possess fine phenolic ripeness and superb energy on the focused, linear and stunningly long and saline-infused finish. This is a seriously impressive effort that is built to age. 94 points.’ Allen Meadows, Burghound
 
1 case of 12 bottles Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets, Marquis d'Angerville 2010
£820 In Bond per case of 12 bottles
‘This is notably riper and if not more elegant then certainly more aromatically complex with ripe notes of plum, violets, earth and the same pungent minerality. There is outstanding intensity to the beautifully detailed and seductively rich medium-bodied flavors that possess excellent vitality on the racy, indeed even explosive finish. A classy wine of richness and refinement. 92-94 points.’ Allen Meadows, Burghound
 
2 cases of 12 bottles Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets, Marquis d'Angerville 2009
£780 In Bond per case of 12 bottles
‘This is also quite ripe with liqueur-like aromas of raspberry, cassis and plum that cannot hide the almost aggressive wet stone nuances that carry over to the detailed, mouth coating and intense flavors that possess impeccable balance and outstanding length on the gorgeously complex and seriously long finish. This is terrific and absolutely worth your consideration. 93 points.’ Allen Meadows, Burghound
 
1 case of 12 bottles Volnay 1er Cru Fremiets, Marquis d'Angerville 2009
£390 In Bond per case of 12 bottles
‘Here the nose is appreciably fresher and also displays notes of red currant though the minerality now extends to the aromas and in hallmark Frémiets style, also suffuses the rich, supple and refined middle weight flavors blessed with ample amounts of dry extract that buffer the moderately firm tannins on the impressively long finish. The minerality is so strong that there is a Chablis-like saline character. A classy effort of finesse. 91-93 points.’ Allen Meadows, Burghound
 
1 case of 12 bottles Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Angles, Marquis d'Angerville 2009
£425 In Bond per case of 12 bottles
‘Very fresh and overtly ripe aromas of red currant, plum and raspberry give way to rich, supple and seductively round medium-bodied flavors that culminate in a delicious and discreetly mineral-infused finish. This is really quite lacy and notably finer than it usually is. 91 points.’ Allen Meadows, Burghound

Bordeaux 2014 - Wines of Mouton Rothschild

We are pleased to offer today the wines from the Mouton Rothschild stable, including the Grand Vin itself. All the wines are made by the same team and quality is very high across the board. 

We thought the Armailhac shows lovely fruit and balance and at £230 per case, represents good value. The Clerc Milon is also very good but considering the price of £320 per case, we think Armailhac is the better buy.
