Description

100% Pinot Noir. 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 domaine Marquis d’Angerville has been synonymous with the greatest Volnays. Since taking over in 2003 after following his father’s death, Guillaume d’Angerville has continued the tradition of non-interventionist winemaking, being in the vineyards every day, and letting the terroir speak for itself. We’ve been fans of Marquis d’Angerville for as long as we’ve loved Burgundy and a list of their holdings touches all of the village’s great terroirs. Including one of the most picturesque vineyards in Volnay and a monopole of the estate, Clos des Ducs, which always has grand cru-like intensity. Explore the ethereal quality of Burgundy Pinot Noir with the whole range of Marquis d’Angerville’s wines.

Tasting Notes
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.
