This 1er Cru is situated to the eastern extremities of the appellation adjacent to Pommard on a chalk and powdery limestone subsoil. Produced from vines averaging 60-65 years old, this wine is aged for 14 months in oak barrels, none of which are new. In 2021 there were only 4 barrels produced.

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 wine that offers a wonderful array of fruit characters – red cherry, blackcurrant, prune. Intense and concentrated, the structure is impressive with succulent texture, suave, chalky tannins and a feminine allure. The very low yields in 2021 have helped produce a very concentrated and harmonious wine.
Try with rack of lamb with Pinot Noir infused honey and rosemary sauce, or herbed lamb chops.
