This was another tasting from miniature cask samples, sent by courier, which transported us immediately, to the little square in front of the Church and to the cellars at Voillot. It is just remarkable how much identity these wines can convey.
They use no whole bunches at Voillot and the winemaking is very traditional, with daily pigeages and remontages at the start of the fermentation. The style of winemaking here inherently leads to elegant wines, but in 2019 there is also masses of fruit concentration, backed up by fine, ripe tannins which will sustain the wines for a very long time.
With such a fine, ripe and balanced vintage on offer, there has never been a better time to buy these classic reds from Voillot.
Offered en primeur, landing Autumn 2021.

Tasting NotesThe village Volnay is from old vines, averaging 50 years of age. These are spread across several parcels totalling under 2 hectares. with an average age of 50 years. Delicate red fruits and floral notes (rose petal) but with more luxurious fruit than we are used to here. This does an amazing tight rope walk between elegance and ripeness, remarkable how it is still so elegant even with all this fruit. RKL
