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.
The bouquet is really ripe, quite intense with distinct jamminess and concentration; the palate continues this feeling of concentration and mulled red fruits - quite exotic in fact and showing richness, fruit sweetness and a touch of smoky spice. The tannins are gentle yet gripping toward the finish. One important point to mention is the acidity. Such is the ripeness levels in 2020 that the acidity doesn’t seem apparent in the mouth, yet at 3.9 is higher than similar vintages like 2018, where the acidity was more marked in the mouth at 3.5.
A delicious accompaniement to turkey and chicken dishes.

Jancis Robinson, 2022, 16.5 points: "Cask sample. Mid cherry red. Immediate brightness of fruit quickly moderated by Burgundy’s savour. This is just gorgeous. It has generous fruit, succulent tannins, perfect freshness. Rounded, deep, long. Caressing but not rich, scented but not OTT. "
