Domaine Joseph Voillot - Volnay 1er Cru - Les Fremiets
Overview: Domaine Joseph Voillot is located in Volnay, a small wine village a few kilometres from Beaune. For 6 generations, we have been cultivating 8 hectares of vines that extend across the municipalities of Meursault, Volnay, Pommard and Beaune. The 13 appellations of the estate are all produced with equal care in the purest Burgundian tradition with respect for our terroirs. Domaine Joseph Voillot is managed by Etienne Chaix, grandson of Joseph and nephew of Jean-Pierre Charlot who has taken a step back but remains on hand when needed. Reasoned agriculture is part of every intervention in our vine parcels for the best possible results, and our intention is to always make the best decisions keeping the environment in mind. Our farm has been awarded the high environmental value (HVE) certification. Guided by the experience of previous generations and motivated by the desire to pass on our traditions to the next, we aim to ensure Joseph’s work and the quality of the wines endure.
Tasting Notes: Mingling notions of cassis, cherries and plums with hints of coniferous forest floor and dark chocolate, the 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Les Fremiets is medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with an enveloping, multidimensional core, fine energy and a mouthwateringly saline finish.
Pairing: Filet Mignon, Roasted Duck
