En Primeur Volnay Joseph Voillot will be available for delivery or storage once it lands in the UK, usually two years following the en primeur offer.
Admired by all of the up and coming wine makers, Jean-Pierre Charlot (Joseph Voillot’s son-in-law) 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). We are lucky to have any of his wines to offer as yields in recent years have been severely limited due to hail damage. Jean-Pierre’s enthusiastic nephew Etienne has recently taken the reigns at the Domaine.
Lots of bright red fruit here, with a real sense of vibrancy on the palate. The balance is superb and effortless, with a soft hint of spice. Beautifully expressive of the charm that is often so evident in the best wines of Volnay, this will be approachable a little sooner than the Pommard.
Further information on En Primeur Burgundy will be available soon. For more details please contact [email protected].
Based in the centre of Gevrey Chambertin, Chantal Tortochot is a shining example of wines which demonstrate the energy and personality of their keeper. Her verve and charm show beautifully in these powerful but elegant expressions of Gevrey. Consistently producing what’s recognised as one of the top Clos de Vougeot in blind tastings, the wines of Domaine Tortochot represent superb value for money from villages to Grand Cru, where value for money is increasingly difficult to find.
