2014 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Clos des Ducs" (Previously $225)

SKU #1307799 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2014 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs has a very complex and introverted, but captivating bouquet that draws you in, full of blackberry, briary, cold limestone and just a hint of baking powder in the background lending sweetness. The palate is sensual on the entry. There is roundness and depth here, coupled with very good substance, a hint of white pepper perhaps, and as always, with immense precision on the finish. There is nothing flamboyant here -- just a very aristocratic Volnay for long term aging. (NM)  (12/2015)

94 points Decanter

 The highly decadent, inviting bouquet is redolent of red fruit. Suavely textured on the palate, this wine is poised and elegant, with a gorgeous balance and purity. (EL)

93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 Classic ruby color. The understated nose only grudgingly reveals cool and ultra-pure aromas of violet, herbal tea, spice and a broad mélange of wild red berries. There is a really lovely vibrancy to the superbly well-detailed medium weight flavors that are intensely stony with a sleek and polished palate feel that carries over to the impeccably well-balanced, hugely persistent and youthfully austere finale. This is sufficiently supple that it should drink well on the younger side but if you wish to experience it at its peak, it will be necessary to have at least some patience. *Outstanding*  (4/2017)

93 points Vinous

 Medium red, the lightest of these 2014s. Reticent but highly nuanced nose offers aromas of redcurrant, dark raspberry, milk chocolate, earth and animal fur, plus a riper suggestion of prune (this fruit was picked at 13% potential alcohol). Wonderfully silky and ripe; large-scaled and round for 2014 but not at all heavy. Not as primary as the extraordinary 2015 but the wine's wonderfully refined, thoroughly ripe, late-arriving tannins will require considerable patience. (ST)  (3/2017)

93 points Wine Spectator

 This red offers well-defined cherry, currant and spice flavors, supported by vibrant acidity. Saturated with pure, ripe cherry fruit midpalate, this firms up, yet remains balanced and mouthwatering on the long finish, showing spice and chalk accents. (BS, Web—2016)

Jancis Robinson

 Protected by the village from hail. Relatively low-key nose. Roses. Really quite open and subtle. Soft tannins. Super-charming but with an undertow of really deep flavours. A soft brush of a feather on the cheek but with quite a charge of tannins and acidity – underneath. Quite complex and intellectual. Tightens up on the finish. 17.5/20 points (JR)  (11/2015)
