Wine Information

Clos des Ducs - Marquis d'Angerville
1er Cru

In 1804, Baron du Mesnil acquired the Clos des Ducs, an estate based in “Vollenay” in the Côte de Beaune (Burgundy) district.
In 1906, after the phylloxera crisis of the late nineteenth century, the great-grandson of Baron du Mesnil, the Marquis d’Angerville, grand-father of Guillaume d’Angerville, the current owner, took over the estate. He made it his goal to replant the vineyards with fine strains of Pinot Noir and restore the estate to its former glory. A fierce advocate of wine authenticity, he pioneered estate bottling. Marquis d’Angerville was the very first to domaine-bottle his whole production and to sell directly from the estate.
His son Jacques d’Angerville took over the estate in 1952, after his father’s death. He was as uncompromising as his father in his quest for quality. He had a big role in the wine world as president of the Comité Interprofessionnel des Vins de Bourgogne, the first President of Institut Universitaire de la Vigne et du Vin of Dijon and the President and later as the Honorary President at the French Wine Academy.
His son Guillaume, representing the sixth generation, has now taken over the estate, with a similar approach to wine-making. He is assisted by Renaud de Villette, his brother-in-law, who worked with Jacques d’Angerville for 15 years.

The wine-making philosophy of the estate is “let the terroir speak out”
The estate is planted with high quality, old vines, producing naturally low yields. Soils are systematically turned over rather than being treated with herbicides. The moderate and occasional use of organic compost stimulates the microbial and biological balance of the soil.

Soil: marny limestone soil

Production area: 2,4 ha

Grape varieties: Pinot Noir

Average age of vines:

Harvest method: hand picked

Winemaking: Vinification is based on the principle of minimum interference. Fermentation starts naturally after a short period of cool pre-fermentation maceration

Ageing: 15 to 18 months in oak casks, the percentage of new oak rarely exceeding 25%

Vintage 1982

Fine spring weather resulted in a rapid fruit-set, followed by a textbook summer and a warm start to autumn. However there was little green harvesting at the time, so the resulting crop was huge. Pinot Noir is very sensitive to high production and, despite the ideal growing conditions, this has affected the character of the vintage. The red wines were light and offered immediate drinking pleasure in their early life; the whites did much better because Chardonnay is less sensitive to high cropping levels. The best climats could still provide some surprises.
