This fine red Burgundy may say simple Bourgogne on the label, but it is in fact made from prime Pinot Noir just a stone’s throw from Volnay itself. It displays all the classic character of the famous name – silky, floral fruit with enticing aromas.
Beyond the Label
Silken texture with upfront strawberry and raspberry freshness, leafy
Raspberry, strawberry, cherry with hints of peonies
A fine red Burgundy that tastes way above its simple appellation. That’s because the fruit comes from 50-year-old vineyards just below Volnay, giving the wine terrific intensity as well as some of the flavour and style of that top appellation. Joseph Voillot is a superb, sixth-generation family estate that is meticulous in producing wines which speak clearly of fruit and origin, while avoiding layers of showy new oak. Winemaker today is Joseph’s son-in-law Jean-Pierre Charlot, assisted by his nephew Etienne Chaix. Expert Michel Bettane wrote, “Jean-Pierre Charlot has vinified some of the finest and most balanced wines of Volnay and Pommard," while Wine Advocate said, "this address comes recommended." Enjoy with game or rich mushroom dishes.
"Very appealing, silky red Burgundy from a deliciously fresh vintage and a family domaine"
