Until 2010, ask many a Volnaysien which has been their best recent vintage, and a majority will not even mention 2005, rather 2002 gets their rosette. Lets see how that’s going…
2002 Marquis d’Angerville, Volnay 1er Clos des Ducs
Deep colour. The nose begins with fine width, though modest depth, yet there is a good floral aromatic – roses rather than violets. Compact, yet intense and concentrated. High-toned fruit and flowers are the main focus of the mid-palate with a slowly developing depth of concentration. I’d describe it as compact rather than tight but there is much complexity here – the acidity is forward but not dominating. Very good length.
Rebuy – Yes
