Marquis d’Angerville is the icon of Volnay. From 1952 until his death in 2003, Jacques d’Angerville had a process in farming, harvesting, and crafting his wines that Allen Meadows called, “Minimalist to the extreme.” The 1er Cru Volnay AOC is a blend of three outstanding vineyards; ‘Angles’, ‘Pitures’, and ‘Mitans’ and is always overachieving. Guillaume took over the domaine after his father’s death and no radical changes followed. By the time the 2005 vintage was released to the public the word was out that going forward, the wines of d’Angerville may become even more sought after. That assessment over the past decade has proven to be correct.
