2001 Marquis d’Angerville, Volnay 1er Clos des Ducs try to find this wine...
Medium ruby-red colour. The nose remains tight and undistinguished during our time together – faintly red, slightly high-toned and floral with an occasional deep baked red fruit note – but always very understated. A silky-smooth entry and nothing more than a suggestion of tannin. The acidity is inconspiciously efficient and there seems reasonable concentration. Silky and very long are the positives, and I found no negatives – unless you count that I found relatively little. It’s tight but judging by this bottle at least, I’m not disappointed that further bottles lie in the cellar.
Rebuy – Maybe
Following the Jarollières, this was a much nicer wine, but for the price (and expectation) it needs to show much more.

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