Volnay

by Jean Vaudoisey 2018

Region : Burgundy (France)

Bottle Per Case : 6 x 750 ml

Food Pairing : Cured Meat, Duck breast, Red Meat

Tasting Notes

Volnay sits on a geological fault line, with short, steep hills on either side. As you travel south from the centre of the village, the twisty lanes become so small that you can’t believe you are on a proper road, and this is where you will find Domaine Jean Vaudoisey. It is run by brothers Romain and Baptiste Poirrotte, the sixth generation of this family on the land, who took over from their grandfather, the eponymous Jean Vaudoisey, in 2015 at the tender ages of 27 and 24 respectively.

Vibrant deep, dark colour with a gorgeous nose of spicy black fruit, really intense, blackcurrant, some tar and with the volume turned right up! On the palate juicy, primary black fruit with some grilled notes, deeply fruited with supple but substantial tannins behind the perfumed fruit and spice, going to a long, chocolatey, full bodied finish. Superb value for money.

The Producer

Jean Vaudoisey

Romain Poirrotte is the new, super-fresh face of this old Volnay domaine. Romain often worked with his grandfather and thought it fitting that the domaine retain his name – Jean Vaudoisey.

Jean Vaudoisey is Romain’s grandfather and Romain, the 6th generation of this side of the family (since 1806) has taken on this 7 hectare family domaine. Romain’s 7 hectares, which include regional wines, Volnay, Volnay 1er Cru, Pommard, and a little Meursault too.

Triage is in the vines and again afterwards at the domaine, then all destemmed.
