2009 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Champans" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1201578 94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An incredibly complex, fresh and seductively perfumed nose offers up a wonderfully layered set of ripe red berry fruit, cassis, mineral and spice aromas that introduce sappy and lacy yet serious middle weight flavors that possess both excellent power and fine volume, all wrapped in a magnificently long finish. The tannins are quite firm yet they're also well-integrated as the abundant dry extract pushes them to the background. In a word, sensational. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (1/2012)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark In a vintage in which so many wines are all about intensity, 2009 Marquis d’Angerville’s Volnay Champans (magnum) impresses for its perfume, delineated fruit and fabulous overall balance. Refined and impeccable in its sense of restraint, the 2009 is so very pretty and expressive. Silky tannins round out the racy, polished finish. What a gorgeous wine this is. (AG) Inner quote mark (6/2014)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Gorgeously pure on the nose with a pretty freshness. In the mouth this is richer and more voluptuous, with a nice gaminess and hedonistic soused cherries. (EL) Inner quote mark (5/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A fleshy style, this rich wine leans toward black fruit—cherry and berry—and licorice flavors. Smooth and sleek, with a mineral undercurrent and a vibrant structure. Very harmonious. (BS) Inner quote mark (5/2012)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Volnay 1er Cru Champans was tasted against the 2011, the latter much more expressive and approachable. Speaking to Guillaume d'Angerville himself, seated next to me, I remarked that I thought the 2009 was closing down and he agreed. It has lost its initial exuberance - a bouquet that appears to have closed in on itself. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, stoic and a tad introverted, moody even, slightly grainy in texture with just a touch of piquancy on the finish. I am sure this will ultimately come good, but this is a surly Volnay for the patient. Those without it ought to head for the 2007 or 2011 vintages. (NM) Inner quote mark (4/2016)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep but closed nose hints at cherry, herbs and damp earth. Then large-scaled and explosive in the mouth, with a compellingly creamy quality to its red fruit and licorice flavors. Approachable now for its sheer sweetness and generous mouthfeel, this thick but shapely wine nonetheless needs time in the cellar to show more complexity. According to Guillaume d'Angerville, the 2009s "refined themselves" during their last months of elevage. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2012)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Some notes of undergrowth and spice. Not as ripe as I had expected from this vintage, more savoury and dry. Almost rounded – just still a very slight edge to the tannins. Finely structured, the ripeness showing more in depth of fruit than in fruit flavour. Rich mid palate and cool finish. 17/20 points (JH) Inner quote mark (3/2016)
