Domaine Joseph Voillot, Volnay – 2015s

8 11 2016

A great tasting here as ever with the ebullient Jean-Pierre Charlot who remains cheerful despite the challenges of recent years and the low yields. The 2015s are just as you’d expect – darker colours, blacker fruits and more density. There is a voluptuousness to the wines allied to the silkiness of texture with freshness to the fruit. My favourites were the Volnay Champans – very fine and concentrated with black cherry and small wild berry flavours – and the Pommard Pezerolles – only two barrels but dark, sultry, soft, rich and powerful.
