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.
This wine has a delightful bouquet, immediate and upfront with delicious red berry fruit - soft and velvety with notes of cherry, spice and plum. Sweet notes continue through the palate, giving the wine a nice sensuality and openness that firms slightly towards the finish.
Try with slow cooked rabbit with herbs.
