Situated to the right as you enter Pommard from Beaune, lying on vineyards that slope gently up from the road on the right as you leave Beaune, and adjoining Beaune 1er cru. Always one of the star performing wines at this domaine, this vintage Etienne Chaix has produced a flamboyant, dense and generous wine.

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.

A youthful monster! A smoky, dense, brooding and powerful Pinot Noir, with thick streaks of condensed raspberry coulis, dark chocolate, with a sprinkle of herbs, minerals and exotic spices. Very dense, muscular and generous – a Big wine!
Great with duck breast with lavender beetroot and sweet potato.
Etienne started harvesting on the 27th August, some 3 weeks ahead of normal. After fermenting in tank, with regular pigeage, the wine finishes fermentation and is aged in 20% new oak for 12 months.
