Tasting Notes

Vinous – 88

The 2008 Volnay Champans 1er Cru has a perfumed nose, just a touch of greenness perhaps, red berry fruit mixed with orange zest. The palate is medium-bodied with a crunchy texture, quite austere and linear, some hardness on the finish perhaps. You kind of miss a little flesh on the finish. I wonder if decanting might have meliorated the showing of this Champans? [Neal Martin, 24/08/2022]

Anticipated maturity: 2022-2030

Robert Parker – 91

Tart cherry, porcini, and game in the nose of the d’Angerville 2008 Volnay Champans lead to a sappy, bright mouthful of vivid red berries underlain by mushroom stock and following up with a saline, umami-rich, saliva-inducing finish. This has the purity and clarity, the brightness and energy that make this vintage so fascinating and appealing ” at least to tasters for which these are important virtues. I suspect it will retain its energy for 10-12 years at least. Guillaume d’Angerville and Renaud de Villette had good reason for their upbeat assessment of 2008 quality given the vintage’s travails, notably July hail that ravaged their Champans and parts of their villages and Bourgogne holdings, as well as touching other sites. The hail came too soon in the season, though, to have ill-effects on the eventual health of the fruit, and the team did not start picking until the 27th of September. With the exception of Clos des Ducs and Taillepieds ” bottled the week of my April visit, but showing no ill-effects, au contraire ” the 2008s were bottled in early March.
