Volnay 1er Cru Champans Joseph Voillot 2016 is available to purchase.
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.
“The most brooding of Jean-Pierre Charlot’s Volnays, the Champans reveals savoury aromas of plum, cassis, cherry, grilled meats and rich soil. On the palate the wine is very concentrated and full-bodied, with a deep core of vibrant fruit and a rich framing of ripe tannins. Excellent and full of potential. 94 points.” William Kelley, www.decanter.com, October 2017.
