  • One of the greatest name in Burgundy, 2-star domaine as rated by Clive Coates, MW
  • Marquis d'Angerville became famous in the 1920's when then the owner of the domaine was dissatisfied with the corrupt, blending practice of the negociants, which practically controlled all sales in Burgundy
  • Marquis d'Angerville boldly distanced themselves from the negociants and began bottling their own wines in 1920's
  • Not only was the domaine the first to do so, it practically started this "revolution" and spreaded it across Burgundy
  • Our feature wine from Marquis d'Angerville, Clos des Ducs Premier Cru, is their monopole and crown jewel 

Wine Advocate: 91-93
" As is obvious from my scores, I absolutely adored d'Angerville's two top wines. Offering a gorgeous, saturated black/purple color, the Volnay Clos Des Ducs has a sublime nose of violets, roses, and super-ripe plums, cherries and blueberries. Full-bodied, oily-textured and impressively concentrated, this wine has a mouth-watering core of Asian spices, fresh herbs, and deeply sweet red and black fruits. Its purity, precision and elegance are simply mindboggling. Bravo." (Aug 1997)

Burghound: 92
" I have had distinctly mixed experiences with the '95 Ducster, from excellent to certain examples that are somewhat drying, indeed to the point of astringency. This most recent bottle evidenced a beautifully complex, even perfumed nose of earth, rose petal and lovely and layered secondary aromas. There is fine detail and mid-palate density to the mineral-laden flavors that culminate in a moderately dry finish where the dryness stops just short of aggressiveness. By contrast, other bottles have displayed much better balance with none of the asperity I describe above. Scores have ranged from 88 to 92 for the best examples, with most hovering between 91 and 92." (Jul 2001)

IWC: 89+
" Medium red. Spicy, redcurrant aroma, complicated by an ineffable mineral aspect. Spicy but not particularly forthcoming in the mouth; the flavors have a dusty edge. I get less fat here than in the '96 version, and also less vibrancy. This rather persistent but tannic wine will require four or five years of aging, but may reach peak drinkability earlier than the '96. Seems a bit more fragile than I thought a year ago." (Apr 1998)
