Tart cherry, porcini, and game in the nose of the d’Angerville 2008 Volnay Champans lead to a sappy, bright mouthful of vivid red berries underlain by mushroom stock and following up with a saline, umami-rich, saliva-inducing finish. This has the purity and clarity, the brightness and energy that make this vintage so fascinating and appealing – at least to tasters for which these are important virtues. I suspect it will retain its energy for 10-12 years at least. ||Guillaume d’Angerville and Renaud de Villette had good reason for their upbeat assessment of 2008 quality given the vintage’s travails, notably July hail that ravaged their Champans and parts of their villages and Bourgogne holdings, as well as touching other sites. The hail came too soon in the season, though, to have ill-effects on the eventual health of the fruit, and the team did not start picking until the 27th of September. With the exception of Clos des Ducs and Taillepieds – bottled the week of my April visit, but showing no ill-effects, au contraire – the 2008s were bottled in early March. Wine Advocate.June, 2010

Guillaume d'Angerville manages the Domaine Marquis d'Angerville with modern edge yet still preserving the well established values that have been passed on for generations: rigour, respect of the important terroirs and humility to the power of nature in every vintage.2003 saw the team strengthened with the addition of François Duvivier, who is in charge of the vineyards and cultivation. François achieved his degree in oenology at Dijon university, and on joining made his first task to move to Domaine towards bio-dynamic farming.Marquis d'Angerville will appear on wines from Volnay 1er Cru vineyards, Meursault 1er cru and Pommard 1er cru.
