A new addition from this top Volnay grower, this 0.23ha single plot with vines that average 50 years old, produces only 3 barrels of wine (75 cases).

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.

Aromas of black fruits, deep and smouldering, the palate is mouth filling, with layer upon layer of sumptuous, rich fruits, soft ripe tannins and a refined, elegant finish. An alluring wine, textured, moreish and seductive.
After harvesting by hand, the grapes are destemmed and fermented in barrel, 20% of which is new.
