"The balance is impeccable.... "
2006 D'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs

Posted by Ian McFadden

I've always admired the 2006 Clos des Ducs.

In this vintage, Ducs hits an amazing equilibrium.

Catching Clos des Ducs in top form is a special treat. D’Angerville’s monopole Clos des Ducs is the crown jewel of Volnay.

The steep Clos des Ducs 2.4-hectare monopole produces wines of singular intensity and breeding. It has no trouble competing with Grand Crus.

The 2006 Ducs is just starting to enter its prime drinking window. It boasts a luminous clarity and riveting detail. There's a beautiful mineral tension and high-toned notes. 

I'll close by mentioning that this is a very small parcel. We rarely get to offer red Burgundy with age. Whenever we do, a quick sell-out is almost guaranteed. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best. 

To order, email offers@crushwineco.com or call the store at (212) 980-9463.

Burhound (2009): "Here there is no reduction whatsoever with a reasonably expressive nose of red and blue pinot fruit and dried rose petal nuances that dissolve into rich, intense and mineral-inflected flavors of crystalline purity and wonderful cut and precision, all wrapped in an exceptionally fresh, deep and mouth coating finish that seems to go on and on. The balance is impeccable and this too will live for many a year before it reaches old age. A classic Ducster that is slightly bigger than the '07 version is not quite as refined. A choice."
