This is Voillot’s largest holding of 1er cru (1.7ha), situated on heavier clay soils that give the wine more depth and intensity, almost in the mould of Pommard.

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.

Aged in 10% new oak, this is a rich and chunky wine, loaded with powerful cassis fruits, firm, but ripe tannins and impressive density. The finish is smooth and long. Impressive!
Try with rack of lamb with Pinot Noir infused honey and rosemary sauce, or herbed lamb chops.
