Grands crus of Volnay


The very first mention of the Domaine Marquis d'Angerville and its vineyard was found in 1507, when it still belonged to the famous Dukes of Burgundy. At the time, the estate was known as the "Clos des Ducs". In 1804, the Baron du Mesnil bought the Volnay property, which is how it came into the d'Angerville family. Nearly a century later, in 1888, the Baron's great-grandnephew, Sem d'Angerville, inherited the estate.

He waited until 1906 to become its full-time manager. The Clos des Ducs had been completely abandoned after the phylloxera epidemic that had ravaged the vineyard during the late 19th century. Sem brought it back on its feet and founded the Domaine du Marquis d'Angerville. As a fierce advocate for authentic wines, he decided to embottle his own production, going against the dubious ethics of various Beaune merchants.

In his fight against appellation fraud, he helped create the Institut National des Appellations (current INAO), founded in 1935. When he died in 1952, his son Jacques d'Angerville was next in line to take care of the family domain. In love with quality products and involved in many professional wine institutions like Sem was, Jacques solidified the reputation of the estate and dedicated his entire life to Volnay.

In 2003, the current owner Guillaume d'Angerville, is continuing his father's work. Named "Major Burgundian Producer of the 20th Century" by the wine guide Bettane & Desseauve, he represents the sixth generation at the helm of the Domaine Marquis d'Angerville. Seeing the rise of organic winemaking techniques in 2003, he decided to switch to biodynamics three years later, adding some modernity to ancestral family customs.
