Unusually rich for this vintage, this is another seductive wine from this wonderful domaine.Produced from a 0.23ha single plot with vines that average 50 years old, grown on south facing vineyards overlooking Pommard. In 2021 only 1 barrel was produced! (25 cases) After harvesting by hand, the grapes are destemmed and fermented in barrel. Étienne Chaix used no new oak at the domaine in 2021.

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.

Brooding, with plum fruits dominating the bouquet, this wine is very moreish in style, oozing black fruits and liqourice, that sit on a thick velvety texture. The tannins are impressive but in check, providing great support.
Great with pan fried duck breast with a cherries and port.
