Domaine Marquis d'Angerville
We’ve been fans of Domaine Marquis d’Angerville for as long as we’ve loved Burgundy and while there are other excellent expressions of Volnay, for us the identity of the village is encapsulated here. A list of their holdings touches all of the village’s great terroirs, including one of the most picturesque vineyards in Volnay and a monopole of the estate, Clos des Ducs.
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. 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.
