Domaine Joseph Voillot
This domaine has been producing wine now for five generations, but it is since the present owner, Jean Pierre Charlot, son-in-law of Joseph Voillot, took control that it has moved into the league of serious wine producers. The domaine consists of 10ha of vineyards, with holdings in the top vineyards of both Volnay and Pommard, including some prized sites in several 1er Crus. The grapes are partially destemmed and the wines matured in oak barrels (20-35% new) for 12-18 months.
The bouquet is rich yet gentle showing dense sweet red fruits. The palate is juicy with hints of finely integrated oak and a little cerise on the finish.
Try with slow cooked rosemary and garlic lamb shoulder.
