    ABOUT THIS WINE

    Located south of Beaune at the foot of the Chaignot mountain, the village of Volnay sits at an altitude of 270 metres, with just under 300 inhabitants.

    With its 29 climats classified as premier cru, the Volnay appellation is made up of vineyards planted with the pinot noir grape variety exclusively, and produces fine, feminine and elegant red wines.

    In this municipality, the Voillot estate produces 3 wines classified in the premier cru appellation: Caillerets, Champans and Fremiets and 1 wine classified as Volnay Vieilles Vignes produced by blending wines from 5 terroirs.

    The 2018 Domaine Joseph Voillot Volnay Les Champans Premier Cru is from 4.2 acres whose vines date from 1934, 1971, and 1985. Champans is down-slope in the premier cru band, and its wine typically has more fruit and power than other Voillot Volnays.

    ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

    Domaine Joseph Voillot is located in Volnay, a small wine village a few kilometres from Beaune. For 6 generations, the family has been cultivating 8 hectares of vines that extend across the municipalities of Meursault, Volnay, Pommard and Beaune. The 13 appellations of the estate are all produced with equal care in the purest Burgundian tradition with respect for the terroirs.

    Domaine Joseph Voillot is managed by Etienne Chaix, grandson of Joseph and nephew of Jean-Pierre Charlot who has taken a step back but remains on hand when needed. Reasoned agriculture is part of every intervention in the vine parcels for the best possible results, and the intention is to always make the best decisions keeping the environment in mind. The farm has been awarded the high environmental value (HVE) certification. Guided by the experience of previous generations and motivated by the desire to pass on the tradition.
