Domaine Marquis d’Angerville
Located in Volnay, Domaine Marquis d’Angerville is a name not only renowned for fantastic wines, but for its historical impact on the region. In the 1920’s, Guillaume’s grandfather, Jacques d’Angerville, grew critical of the local négociants’ widespread fraudulent blending in their cellars and after threatening to sue, was left with no clients. Taking this all in stride, d’Angerville decided to make the wine himself and sell it under his own label, fundamentally changing Burgundy into a domaine-led winegrowing region. Guillaume assumed control of the domaine in 2003 and by 2009, had converted the estate to biodynamics. This is hands down one of the most important domains in Burgundy.
Guillaume Lavollée and his wife, Aude, represent the 4th generation to run Domaine Génot-Boulanger. The family owns an astonishing 54 acres, from Chambolle Musigny, down to the domaine in Meursault, and on to Mercurey. As of 2008, Guillaume and Aude have worked painstakingly to improve the quality of their wines, converting to organic farming practices and experimenting with biodynamics. The domaine’s philosophy is “maximum work in the vineyards for minimum intervention in the cuverie.” Domaine Génot-Boulanger is making some of the most compelling, under-the-radar wine coming out of the Côte d’Or, and cannot wait to share them with you before they’re impossible to find!
