Champans-marken ligger i hjertet af Volnay og vinen herfra regnes for at være den mest klassiske repræsentant forappellationen. Allerede som ung byder vinen på en utrolig komplekst sammensat bouquet af hindbær, lys chokolade, eucalyptus, mokka og vanille. Smagen er ligeledes meget ekspressiv med en silkeblød, smidig struktur. Hvis man er det mindste i tvivl om hvorfor Volnay-distriktet og Marquis d'Angerville har opnået verdensberømmelse, får man svaret hér.

The 2013 Volnay Champans is one of the highlights in this range. Sweet, perfumed and supple, the 2013 offers gorgeous balance and tons of pedigree. Hard candy, rose petals, spices and new leather are some of the nuances that linger on a finish marked by a distinct sense of sucrosité (sweetness). - Antonio Galloni
The 2013 Volnay 1er Cru Champans has a feisty, much more gourmand bouquet compared to its siblings at this early stage with almost meaty red berry fruit infused with limestone/flinty scents. The palate is very focused with an abiding sense of symmetry, long in the mouth with fine tannins (although not as filigree as the Taillepieds) but with the same silky and harmonious texture toward the long finish. Excellent.
Bright medium red. Alluring superripe aromas of black cherry, mint and bitter chocolate: I would have guessed that this wine was vinified with some whole clusters but in fact it was entirely destemmed. A rather powerful Volnay with a slightly high-toned, almost porty ripeness to its black cherry, dark berry and chocolate flavors, but strong, slightly peppery acidity gives it a penetrating, somewhat disjointed quality in the early going. This deep, chewy Volnay finishes with big, granular tannins and excellent persistence.
Black cherry, raspberry and pepper flavors mark this vibrant red, holding back for now, but showing a sense of the depth and saturated fruit. The finish is firm and chalky, but this will open up with air and time. Best from 2019 through 2032.
Reduction. Here there is more size, weight and power to the detailed and more subtly mineral-driven flavors that also possess a lovely texture on the dusty, palate coating and linear finish. This is impressively long and well-balanced though at present not quite as complex.
