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.
There is no new oak used in the vinification of this wine, with barrels between one to 4 years old used. So seductive! Aromatic, fresh Pinot Noir. The palate is succulent and ripe, velvety in texture with cassis fruits and lovely silky tannins.
A delicious accompaniement to turkey and chicken dishes.
