Volnay 1er Cru Les Champans 2014, Domaine Voillot

VOLN270
Aged in 25% new oak for 14 months. A much firmer style than Fremiet, with tighter, linear tannins. The character is more black fruits and mulberry and once again impresses greatly. Dense, brooding with a super concentration.

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, 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 wine full of black fruits and mulberry which does not fail to impress. Dense, brooding with super concentration.

Food Matches

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