Marquis d'Angerville Volnay Fremiet 2011


SKU 04036


His Fremiets' lushness, with notes of wood-smoke and leather, reflects the vineyard's location on the Pommard border. Nothing demonstrates red Burgundy's magic like great Volnay, with its enveloping aromatic complexity, silky texture and tremendous aging potential. And for a half century, the name "Jacques d'Angerville" was synonomous with the greatest Volnays. From 1952 until his death in 2003, he made his family's domaine, Marquis d'Angerville, the village's icon. His secret was that he had no secret. Relying on great sites and old vines of a unique clone, Pinot d'Angerville, he proved that great wines were made in the vineyard.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Volnay 1er Cru Les Fremiets has an attractive, minty bouquet with touches of mushroom and forest floor. The palate is medium-bodied with a chocolate-tinged entry. The tannins feel supple and the acidity nicely judged, the finish needing a few more months to fully integrate. Not a bad Volnay by any means, but in my opinion, surpassed by other vintages encountered over the years.
