Situated to the eastern extremities of the appellation adjacent to Pommard on chalk subsoil. Produced from 59 year old vines and aged for 14 months in 25% new oak, this is a Volnay of great finesse.

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.

Singing with overt black fruits dominant, soft and velvety with notes of cherry, spice and plum. Sweet notes continue through the palate, giving the wine a nice sensuality and openness that firms slightly towards the finish.
Try with rack of lamb with Pinot Noir infused honey and rosemary sauce, or herbed lamb chops
