Marquis d'Angerville

Clos des Ducs 21190 VOLNAY
Telephone - (33).
Fax - (33).

The vineyards of the Domaine Marquis d'Angerville are in the finest communes. They are on southeast facing slopes to take full advantage of the morning sun. The soil is composed of chalk and marle. This rocky soil absorbs the heat of the day and releases it at night to extend the growing season and lead to more maturity in the grapes. The steep slopes of the vineyards make for well drained soil on which the grape varieties (primarily Pinot Noir and Chardonnay) thrive.

The grapes at d'Angerville are all hand picked and must pass a rigorous selection process before vinification and ultimately, ageing in oak casks.
