2009 Angerville Marquis d' Volnay Clos des Angles

By billn on May 17, 2011

A relatively new wine for the range. There was already some ‘Angles’ but it was part of the Volnay 1er Cru blend – an extra half hectare was bought that released this cuvée. A limited release in some (mainly UK) markets for 2008, but generally for this 2009 vintage. Pretty powdery red fruits on the nose. Just a little textural padding but there’s good structure too to support the long, lingering finish. Very nice indeed.

2001 Angerville Marquis d' Volnay Clos des Ducs

A good medium, medium-plus colour. It’s an ever-changing nose, though not particularly in a good way: it starts a little diffuse and harsh, then there is a period of absolute red-fruited Volnay beauty followed again by diffuse and slightly green notes. You go through this cycle each time you top up your glass! In the mouth the fruit has a very nice perfume, reasonable density and there is some real persistence of flavour – yet the overall effect is slightly tart and certainly has a little ungainly tannin. It contains some great Volnay references, but it’s far from a great Clos des Ducs…
