Overview of the Wine
Domaine Marquis d’Angerville is one of Burgundy's most sought after estates, and perfectly exemplifies the identity of Volnay. D'Angerville's list of holdings touches all of the village’s great terroirs, including one of the most picturesque vineyards in Volnay, the monopole of the estate, Clos des Ducs. The domaine started bottling its own production in the 1920s after the current Marquis’ grandfather, Sem d’Angerville, challenged the blending methods of the negociants’ and then began bottling his own wines instead of selling them his grapes. D'Angerville was one of the first Burgundy domains to do this, making history and encouraging the future of the region at the same time. Today the estate is led by Guillaume d’Angerville, farmed immaculately, and is producing some of the best wines in the entire Cote d’Or.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
D'Angerville Meursault Santenots expresses above all the minerality of this exceptional terroir. The estate's method of breeding, without excessive batonnage, gives it extra energy and tension. This white wine is dry, very fruity, with a persistent bouquet reminiscent of hazelnut. Its fat is not expressed in attack, but on the length. It can be tasted young or kept for several years.
91 Points - Falstaff
91 Points - Vinous
The Meursault Santenots 1er Cru was very primal and leesy on the nose, grapefruit, chamomile and kiwi fruit scents emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, pear and gooseberry on the entry, cutting acidity with a straightforward, lightly spiced finish. Maybe just a little conservative, but this is well-crafted.
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Revealing aromas of pear, citrus zest, hazelnuts and honeycomb, the 2020 Meursault 1er Cru Santenots is medium to full-bodied, ample and precise, with chalky structure and a saline finish.
