In 1804, the ancestor of the Marquis d'Angerville bought the Domaine du Clos des Ducs in Volnay, Burgundy. Its vineyards include prestigious and historic parcels such as Taillepieds, Caillerets and Champans. These parcels have been part of the Domaine des Ducs de Bourgogne since the 12th century. Almost 200 years later, Guillaume, the grandson of the Marquis d'Angerville, took over the reins of the estate. He cultivates vines and produces wine under the AOC label. Since 2009, Domaine Marquis d'Angerville has practiced biodynamic viticulture. In the cellar, Guillaume uses traditional winemaking techniques, in keeping with the terroirs of the Côte de Beaune.

Domaine Marquis d'Angerville wines
Domaine Marquis d'Angerville produces mainly Pinot Noir Volnay AOC. With its hectares of vineyards in the Volnay Premier Cru appellation, the vineyard produces eight different wines: Caillerets, Champans, Clos des Angles, Fremiet, Mitans, Pitures and Taillepieds. But the estate's emblematic Premier Cru remains Volnay Clos des Ducs, the estate's monopoly. For a bottle of Volnay in the Village appellation, you can count on a Grandchamps or a Pluchots. The domaine also offers a Premier Cru de Pommard. For white wines, a Premier Cru de Meursault-Santenots promises fruity notes. The regional appellation includes a Pinot Noir, a Passetoutgrain (Pinot Noir and Gamay), a Chardonnay and an Aligoté.
