What the experts say...
Lé réussite en 2002 est exceptionnelle, avec des vins d'une finesse et d'une profondeur éblouissantes. Frémier, tout en délicatesse, pourra être bu plus tôt que les très profonds et racés Champans et Clos des Ducs, assurément au meilleur de leur forme dans ce millésime. Enfin le Pommard 2002 séduit par son charme, sa rondeur et sa frâicheur. (Bettane et Desseauve 2005)
Monopole of Domaine Marquis d'Angerville, the Clos des Ducs is made up of parcels put together in 1804 around "Vollenay" in vineyards that were part of the Ducs de Bourgogne domain in the 12th century. The beautiful dark ruby colour releases ample and elegant aromas of dark fruits, cherry and blackcurrant on the palate, with lovely woody tannins. A great wine to age, with a complex and harmonious structure.
Domaine Marquis d'Angerville is a family enterprise created in 1804 by the Baron du Mesnil who acquired the Clos des Ducs, a property situated at Volnay, as well as surrounding parcels (Taillepieds, Caillerets and Champans). After the phylloxera crisis, the Baron du Mesnil's great grandson, the Marquis of Angerville, took over the vineyards and restored it by planting Pinot Noir. He was the first to bottle his own wine and sell it directly at the domain. His son Jacques took over the domain in 1952, and thanks to him the domain was rated among the best. When he died in 2003, he left immaculately-kept vineyards, exemplary wines, and a real philosophy for the great wines of Burgundy. His son Guillaume took over the business with the help of his brother-in-law, Renaud de Villette, an agronomics engineer who had worked with Jacques de Villette for over 15 years. Today, the vineyards cover over 14 hectares, the majority of which is in Volnay and Meursault. Thanks to an excellent grape variety and old vines, the yields are naturally reduced, the soil is worked, and microbial life and soil nutrient balance is maintained. All the wine produced is bottled at the domain.
