2019 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Frémiets" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1524922 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Offering up lovely aromas of sweet berry fruit, plums, orange rind, raw cocoa and spices, the 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Fremiet is medium to full-bodied, bright and mineral, with a firmer, more tightly wound profile than the gourmand, enveloping Clos des Angles, concluding with a saline finish. It's a touch more refined and ethereal than the 2018, but like that wine, it's built to age. The 2019 vintage has turned out very well indeed at Domaine Marquis d'Angerville, where Guillaume d'Angerville and François Duvivier have produced yet another superb portfolio. A touch finer-boned and more vibrant than the estate's 2018s—though the monopole Clos des Ducs always seems to transcend the vintage—the 2019s are beautiful wines that exemplify the elegant muscularity that I'd single out as this domaine's underlying signature over the decades. As I've written before, followers of d'Angerville will be familiar with the protocol here: biodynamic farming, destemmed grapes, classical macerations and élevage in barrels—of which some 20% are new, with older barrels generally being retained for five vintages. These have always been seriously long-lived wines, but contemporary d'Angerville isn't quite as backward and slow to evolve as the wines were in the days of Guillaume d'Angerville's father. The use of barrels with a somewhat younger average age—even if percentages of new wood remain very modest—gives them a slightly glossier patina, especially in their youth.

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The d’Angerville vines in Fremiets (1.57ha) are located in the steepest part of the slope, right above Clos des Angles, where there has been lots of erosion. The thin soils mean the vines have struggled, but here they have triumphed, producing a wine with a dark fruit character, touched with exotic spice and a mineral, almost saline note on the palate that almost contradicts the lovely richness and densely fruity character of the wine.

91-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A touch of menthol is present on the slightly riper nose that displays notes of plum, violet and anise. There is good refinement here as well though it's coupled with ample punch and minerality, all wrapped in an impressively long, focused and relatively powerful finish. At least some patience strongly advised. *Burghound Outstanding!* Inner quote mark (4/2021)

K&L Notes

89-91pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Fine mid purple. Like the Clos des Angles, this is quite discreet, then some more powerful raspberry emerges. Very thick textured sweet raspberry/strawberry fruit, the warmth of the summer is a little more evident here. Tasted: October 2020."
