Admired by all the up and coming winemakers, 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). Jean-Pierre’s enthusiastic nephew Etienne is increasingly involved at the domaine and will ultimately take over the reins. He believes that 2018 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.
“Alluring intensity of fruit on the nose with exotic spices and cigar box aromas. Ripe and rounded on the palate, the tannins are prominent but very well managed. Fruit cake and black cherry. Very good indeed and immense ageing potential.”
