Jacques D’Angerville’s non-interventionist winemaking, learned from his father, allowed these fine terroirs to be fully expressed. As he told Allen Meadows, “I want to do as little as possible to the wine. I want low yields and no signature.” After complete destemming, fermentation lasted 10 to 12 days, with a 12 to 18-month élévage in largely used barrels. To extract fine tannins, the cap was kept moist by twice-daily pump overs. Such methods not only broughtout the crus’ inherent nobility; they created wines of perfect balance and great aging ability.
Though amazingly consistent, his wines shone brightest in top years. Vintages like 1990, 1996, 1999 and 2002 brought an extra dimension of expressiveness, leading to some of the greatest wines of Jacques’ career.
