Pommard 2017, Domaine Voillot

POMM195
Produced from four parcels—Cras, Poisots, Saussilles and Vaumuriens, totaling 1.2 ha, with the vines averaging 55 years old. Classic Pinot Noir. Again, no new oak in this wine, just pure strawberry and cherry fruits, soft and finely integrated tannins with a relatively low acidity, which gives the wine an immediate appeal. Dare I say this wine has a Central Otago twist?!

Domaine 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, 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. Without doubt one of the finest domaines in Volnay, these wines are never heavy or over extracted. They offer the fragrance, charm and beauty so typical of Volnay.

Tasting Notes

A rich, sexy, seamless and sweet-edged Pommard, showing great class and presence. In style this is showing an almost Central Otago character, such is the level of rich, ripe sweet fruit. The palate shows deep and brooding sweet red and black fruits, with a core of confiture and integrated sweet oak. The texture is sublime, heady and weighty with lowish tannins at this stage. Pure decadence!
