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

SKU #1573119 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aromas of cherries, raspberries, raw cocoa, violets, rose petals and spices introduce the 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Angles, a medium-bodied, lively wine that's supple and enveloping, with a charming, demonstrative profile that's typical of this climat. It will offer a broad drinking window. 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.

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark An admirably deft application of wood subtly frames spicy aromas of red and dark currant, violet and a suggestion of sandalwood. The lacy but intense and mineral-driven medium weight flavors conclude in a balanced, wonderfully persistent, and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is sufficiently firm to repay up to a decade of cellaring. *Burghound Outstanding!* Inner quote mark (4/2021)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark The domaine owns 1.06ha of the Clos des Angles, half of which was acquired in 2008; one of only two purchases that Guillaume d'Angerville has made since taking over in 2003. The parcel is located at the foot of the slope on relatively flat terrain, and the wine shows an extremely forward floral aroma, but less of the silky substance than some of the other holdings. Drinking Window 2021 - 2029. (CC) Inner quote mark (10/2020)

K&L Notes

91-93pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Medium purple, with a more refined nose, showing less overt ripeness than the 1er Cru blend. This is a lighter, fine-boned style of Volnay though the richness of the vintage still delivers a little extra weight behind. This is nicely balanced and very persistent, with the right touch of acidity. Tasted: October 2020."
