This impressive and muscular Pinot comes from 4 plots totalling 1.2ha (Cras, Poisots, Saussilles and Vaumuriens) that lead down from the village along a gentle slope of red soil and clay that neighbours the 1er cru of Clos Blanc. The average age of the vines is 50-60 years

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 big, sturdy and ripe, showing great typicity with a refreshing hedgerow fragrance. The palate is impressive, with succulent black fruits, chunky and brooding, gripping tannins and a hint of iron earth. The lack of new oak enables the fruits to express themselves perfectly, with black cherry and cranberry characters dominating. The finish of the wine is perfect with a refreshing acidity and long minerality.
Try with roast duck with redcurrant jus, seasonal greens and chive butter potatoes.
