Volnay 1er Cru Les Fremiets 2010, Domaine Voillot

VOLN180
Another incredible wine from Voillot. Because Fremiets is on the Pommard side of the appellation, it has some of the structural characteristics associated twith Pommard. Silky and classy!

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

More perfumed than the Volnay villages, and more seductive and creamy - pure ripe red fruits, with a sweet edge and rich core. Touch of liquorice - well integrated oak, hint of mulberry then the firmer tannins evolve from the glass. Long Opulent seductive - sexy!

Food Matches

Try with slow cooked rabbit with herbs.
