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.

As usual this wine typifies its appellation. Tight, chunky and masculine in style, the palate is laden with crunchy black fruits, the tannins are firm but ripe and the finish persistent and long.
Try with roast duck with redcurrant jus, seasonal greens and chive butter potatoes.
