“The 2009 Volnay Champans is frankly in another class. Waves of fruit flow across the palate in stunning style. Rose petals, berries and sweet spices are among the nuances that emerge over time. Silky tannins frame the exceptionally long, refined finish. It is a fabulous effort from d’Angerville. Tasted from tank. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2039. The harvest at d’Angerville started on September 9. Guillaume d’Angerville told me that in recent years he has doubled the number of pickers with the goal of harvesting all of the fruit in just a few days. The fruit was 100% destemmed. Cuvaison started with 3-4 days of cold maceration at a modestly cool temperature followed by two weeks on the skins with no punchdowns and a generally soft approach to extraction. After pressing, the wines were moved into barrel. The estate did one racking after the malos. New oak was on average 20-25%. In 2009 the estate completed a conversion to biodynamic farming started in 2006.” 93-95 points, Robert Parker.
