The 2019 wines from Burgundian estate Marquis d’Angerville have been released. The key release from the domain is its Volnay Premier Cru, Clos des Ducs, which is being offered at £1,990 12×75 (£995 6×75) SIB.
Neal Martin scored the wine for Vinous in December last year, giving it an initial bracket of 96-98. He said it had, “a typically aristocratic nose” and was a, “voluminous Clos des Ducs that fills the mouth”.
William Kelley at the Wine Advocate gave it a spread of 94-96 and called it, “immensely promising”.
Taking those scores into account, the 2019 would appear to offer good value versus its back vintages, particularly if Martin were to settle on a final score of 97 or 98 at any future tasting.
Alongside the Clos des Ducs the domain’s selection of other 2019 Volnay, Pommard and Meursault Premier Crus were also released.
