2019 Bourgogne Rouge Joseph Voillot En Primeur. Please click here to email us your wish-list at [email protected].
Admired by all the up-and-coming winemakers, Jean-Pierre Charlot (Joseph Voillot’s son-in-law: ‘winemaker par excellence chez Voillot’, Neal Martin) is something of the grand master, most probably because at some stage he will have had a hand in their wine making education. A charming, ebullient man whose wines are designed to last the long term. They are finely balanced though and can be approached young, not his preference but he knows full well ‘chacun son gout’ (we all have our own tastes). Jean-Pierre’s enthusiastic nephew Etienne has recently taken the reigns at the Domaine and believes that 2019 has been a superb year, with wines that are ripe and structured. ‘These are wines, to put it prosaically, that represent proper Burgundy’, Neal Martin.
“From old vines, the fruit profile is bright and pure but there is grip and depth here. The fruit is warming and the finish spicy. This is in quite a serious phase but is impressive nonetheless. The 2016 is currently showing just how charming these wines are after a couple of years in bottle!”
