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.

A rich and powerful Pommard, smoky, edged and weighty. The intensity of crushed red fruits, laced with crème de Mure, is balanced by freshness and a lovely opulent core.
Try with roast duck with redcurrant jus, seasonal greens and chive butter potatoes.
Hand-picked, destemmed and fermented in epoxy tank then finishes fermenting in 20% new oak, followed by gentle racking and maturing in barrel for 12 months.
