interesting stuff…


A well-written and thought-provoking piece. There are many viewpoints of-course, and it is really no different a complaint to that of people lamenting the high-price purchases of ‘outsiders’ in Burgundy i.e. LMVH, Château Latour and/or whoever is eventually going to stump up the cash for Pousse d’Or (I don’t see anyone stumping up the cash for Rebourseau!).

The argument cuts in all directions; Guillaume d’Angerville himself, hardly happy about a ‘negociant from Nuits’ having bought a sizable chunk of villages Volnay, when he would have preferred the vines to have stayed in ‘Volnay hands.’

It’s sometimes described as progress – it’s always transient – but change is inevitable…

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

There is one response to “interesting stuff…”

    It would seem that Domaine d’Angerville is not particularity concerned about villages Volnay themselves from the looks of their holdings but, then why should they be? I’m also guessing that they have enough money to buy a parcels of village Volnay to keep it in “Volnay hands”. Maybe someone in Nuits beat him to the punch? Sour grapes? Tiger tears….lol
