Average critic rating : 92.0 points



The d'Angerville 2006 Volnay Taillepieds tastes entirely consistent with the top-notch 2006 performances of this site in other hands. A lovely nose ripe black fruits, walnut oil, dark chocolate, and bitter-sweet floral perfume in the nose put me slightly in mind of a really ripe Cabernet Franc. Palpably dense on the palate – its palate-staining black fruits accented with bitter fruit pit, crushed stone, dark chocolate, and peat – this nonetheless preserves a fine sense of vivacity and lift that carries into a pungently-persistent, chalk-, peat-, and white pepper-dominated finish. This rich yet firmly structure, low-toned yet refreshing Taillepieds promises further complexity and elegance for those who give it a few years of bottle age, and I suspect it will hold well for more than a decade. ||Like his illustrious father, Guillaume d’Angerville and estate director (and brother-in-law) Renaud de Villette have beaten the odds with their gentle art of winemaking (inter alia short maceration, no pigeage, promotion of late malo, low levels of new wood) in far more difficult vintages than 2006, so the generally high quality of their recent collection comes as no surprise. They waited until late September, and then brought in their entire crop in only five days. I have not had chance to taste the d'Angerville generic and village wines, nor their Champans it was bottled. Incidentally, this estate continues to routinely give its wines a course plaque filtration. Wine Advocate.December, 2009

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.
