Domaine Joseph Voillot Volnay Les Champans 2019
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Domaine Joseph Voillot|
Richer and more muscular than the Frémiets, the 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Champans evokes notions of cherries, sweet berries, orange rind and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's deep and concentrated, concluding with a long finish. This is the domaine's largest premier cru holding, planted in 1934, 1971 and 1985.
The 2019 Volnay Les Champans 1er Cru, matured in 20% new oak, has darker fruit than the Fremiets, touches of blackberry and briary complementing the raspberry and cranberry. The oak here is neatly enmeshed. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, silkier than the Fremiets in texture with a piquant finish. Delightful and so fresh!
