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

SKU #1530988 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Taillepieds is unusually refined this year, even if it's still very much a vin de garde, unwinding in the glass with notes of cassis, cherries, dark chocolate, warm spices and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and elegantly muscular, it's deep and layered, with bright acids and beautifully refined tannins. 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.

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark D’Angerville has 1.7ha of Taillepieds located above the vines belonging to Etienne de Montille at the top of the premier cru section. The vineyard here is very stony and the thin soils and fairly high elevation on the windy side of the slope, high on the hill, give the wine a bright, high-toned red fruit character, plenty of lively freshness and an elegant, airy texture on the palate.

K&L Notes

92-95 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Slightly deeper purple in colour, offering a dark raspberry fruit with great intensity. Sublimely sensual, but with a strictness of countenance as well, just the right acid and tannin balance, the 2019 marquis d’Angerville Volnay Taillepieds comes to us with a sense of authority. Long flowing finish. Very good."
