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.

Tasting Notes

A soft and attractive Pinot bouquet, the palate is a delicious basket of red fruits with a soft velvety texture.

Food Matches

Try with rack of lamb with Pinot Noir infused honey and rosemary sauce, or herbed lamb chops.
