Domaine Joseph Voillot Volnay Vielles Vignes 2020

Jean-Pierre Charlot, with his nephew Etienne Chaix beginning in 2019, helm this venerable fifth-generation domaine with holdings in the top vineyards of both Volnay and Pommard. For many years, Jean Pierre was a professor at the Lycée Viticole in Beaune, where he taught several of Burgundy’s rising stars. He’s a meticulous man, and what interests him is handling the challenging years when the vineyard work, triage at harvest, and careful cellar practices really pay off. It’s immediately evident when tasting through the domaine’s range that these are true “vins de terroir” (thus the judicious use of new oak), and each wine at every level reflects its origin.
The Volany Vieilles Vignes is from nine parcels totaling nearly 5 acres whose vines average 41 years old. These are among our most coveted and pure Burgundies each year.
