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

Singing with overt black fruits dominant, 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.

Food Matches

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