Good deep red. Cool, medicinal, very primary aromas of black cherry and flowers. Then sappy, sweet and backward, with excellent verve to the black fruit, menthol and licorice flavors. This youthfully clenched and serious wine really saturates the palate. Finishes quite long and vibrant, with a mineral spine that calls for extended cellaring. (ST)
Bright black cherry fruit with a distilled overtone, augmented by sweetly pungent brown spices greets the nose from a glass of d'Angerville 2006 Volnay Clos Des Ducs. There is an overt sense of density and of chalky minerality, but -- as with the more darkly-hued Taillepieds -- that does not occlude the juicy flow of ripe fruit or a sense of lift and refinement. Well-knit and ineradicable in flavor as this is, I feel sure it will be worth following for ten or a dozen years, and strongly suspect that it is only showing hints of the complexity that will come in another 3-4.

Focused cherry, berry and forest underbrush notes are backed by solid tannins. This offers a lot of fruit packed into an elegant frame, but needs time to resolve its tannins. Best from 2012 through 2021. (BS)
