Domaine Joseph VOILLOT, Volnay
Think of the village of Volnay, and it conjures the names of d’Angerville, Lafarge, Pousse d’Or, and Montille. But the late Joseph's son-in-law - Jean-Pierre Charlot - should easily be up there as well, his wines are majestic.
"I continue to hold Jean-Pierre in the highest regard—he is the quintessential Burgundy vigneron with an innate knowledge of winemaking that makes him one of the most respected, if not high profile, in the region. His wines are a masterclass in under-statement, letting the terroir do all the talking." —Neal Martin, December 2013
