7hl/ha!!!!! Only 7 barrels produced compared to the normal 25. Quite unbelievable and of course catastrophic. Produced from ‘vieilles vignes’ with an average 40 years old.What a shame that there is so little!

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

Soft, sensual and complete, showing rich perfume and sexy appealing fruit. The palate is bordering on decadent, with warm red fruits, liquorice, coffee and cherry and seems remarkably developed in its lush, open state. The finish is warm, generous and long with soft yet persistent tannins and a touch of sweetness.

Food Matches

Great with pan fried duck breast with a cherries and port.
