Marquis d'Angerville Volnay Champans 2011


SKU 04037


His Champans is rich and full, characterized by plum, licorice and brown spice aromas and flavors. 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 Champans has more delineation on the nose compared to the 2011 Fremiets. The palate is endowed with a supple, elegant entry that segues into slightly chewy, red berry fruit laced with bay leaf and cracked pepper. It is linear, almost foursquare toward the finish. Classic Pinot, as Guillaume mentioned, and I would afford this Volnay two or three years to show what it can do.
