"Bulletproof Volnay" - 2013 D'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs

Posted by Ian McFadden

D'Angerville's 2013 Ducs is an astonishing success.

D'Angerville's 2013s stand out for their striking clarity and precision. The 2013 Ducs distills the site down to its essence. And it's absolutely captivating.

D'Angerville's 2.4-hectare monopole Clos des Ducs is one of Volnay's best sites. This steep, chalky site produces wines of singular intensity and breeding. It has no trouble competing with Grand Crus.

In 2013, the class and nobility of the Ducs is undeniable. There's a gloriously radiant expression of minerality and earth with complex red fruits, herbs and spice. It has a sleek, chalk inflected tension and ultra-fine finish. Stephen Tanzer calls its "bulletproof Volnay."

I've been a huge fan of this wine since its release and I've grown fonder of it over the years. It's a strikingly clear and gorgeously precise Ducs. For me, this is a don't miss opportunity.
