Harvested from 6 separate plots that lie in front of the 1er cru of Champans, the ‘vieilles vignes’ average over 55 years old. Only 15 barrels were produced in 2021, a third of a normal crop, but the result is fantastic!

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.
The bouquet is open and fragrant, with notes of red cherry and strawberry to the fore. The palate is concentrated, with ripe plum and wild berry notes, a charming tannin structure and a wonderful refreshing acidity that gives an equilibrium to the wine. This is very sexy Volnay!
Great with pan fried duck breast with a cherries and port.
