Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Current Releases
Meursault 1er Cru Santenots
As "Volnaysian" as a climat of Meursault can get since it has the privilege of being able to choose, depending on the grape variety, the name of Volnay when it is planted in Pinot Noir or that of Meursault if the Chardonnay is planted. The domaine's plot of 1.05 hectare is planted to Chardonnay in very marly soil.
Made from the two parcels totaling 0.47 hectares and the first eight or so harvests from the recently planted Volnay 1er cru vineyards.
Volnay 1er Cru
The domaine's Volnay 1er Cru bottling is mostly made up of Les Mitans (0.65 hectares) and Les Pitures (0.31 hectares) but can also include fruit from other 1er cru vineyards' young vine plantings.
Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets
The domaine's plot of Caillerets is 0.45 hectare. The soil is poor, reddish and shallow. The whole climate enjoys an exemplary exposure making it one of the most cerebral crus of Volnay.
Volnay 1er Cru Fremiet
A 1.57 hectare sized parcel located under the Clos des Ducs and Pitures. The soil of this climat in the upper part is very shallow (barely 30 cm of soil) and consists of decomposed marl.
Volnay 1er Cru Taillepieds
The domaine's plot of Taillepieds is 1.07 hectare at the top of the hillside of Volnay, south of the village. The soil of Taillepieds is very poor and rocky. Its steep slope, the thinness of the soil and the particularly solar exposure give the wines of Taillepieds its finess and elegance.
Volnay 1er Cru Champans
3.98 hectares across two parcels that extend from top to bottom of the climat, taking advantage of all the characteristics of Champans southeastern exposure and location in the heart of Volnay's premiers crus. The soil is redder, poor and rests on a rocky calcareous bench at the top of the hill and more stone and deeper soil as the slope decreases down the hill.
Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Angles
The estate has always had a parcel of 0.53 ha in this appellation but was recently able to acquire an adjacent plot of similar size, doubling its production in this appellation. Clos des Angles is located just under Volnay 1er Cru Fremiet, a little lower on the hillside, with a thicker soil and less stony.
Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs
An official act from the early 16th century lists this parcel of 52 ouvrées worked in the old Domain of the Dukes of Burgundy. The ouvrée, the traditional unit of surface in Burgundy, represents the surface area which a vine grower could take care of himself in one day; there are about 24 ouvrées in one hectare. A true clos, enclosed by stone walls on all sides, the Clos des Ducs covers an area of 2.15 hectares, identical to the original 52 ouvrées worked in the 16th century. The soil is calcareous, stony, poor, rather deep and very clayey (white marl). The perfect south-east exposure guarantees ideal sunshine. The very steep slope of the vineyard allows a very good drainage.
