Wine Information

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.

Vintage 1996

When a vintage like 1996 passes and 13 moon chages take place in the year many growers expect difficult moments to come.

Eventhoug the spring was marvellous and the very arly springbut was not affected by any frost.and due to the high tepertures the flowering rarely ever seen before (only one generation !)
The arrival of the summer ...warm and dry in June, cooler but still dry in July and August. A perfect weather with short periods of rainfall each time followed by intense suneshine untill the harvest helped the grapes to finish maturation (Wonderfull natural degrees from 12° to 13°9).

The weather during the harvest was relatively cold, cloudy but dry allowing the growers to harvest each parcel at the best moment of maturity.
The cold nights stabalised the level of acidity in the grapes and most important protected the grapes from rot.

Our first impressions on the Red wines are very promessing with deep colours and good and intense aromas

For the White wines we detect the sugar/acidity balance of a “ Great ” vintage. Despite of the relatively high yields the wines show power and complexity remembering of the 1990 vintage (equal yields).

One very distinctif sign of a very promessing vintage is the smile in the faces of the growers.
