Domaine Joseph Voillot, in Volnay, is a five-generation family estate covering 10 hectares, including 35 parcels and 17 different appellations, from Volnay to Pommard, Meursault to Beaune. When Joseph Voillot retired in 1995, it was his son-in-law, Jean-Pierre Charlot, who took up the helm. Jean-Pierre Charlot is an experienced oenologist, having taught on the subject for a long time in Beaune. Work in the vineyard and the cellar could not be more classic, or better executed. The soil in the vineyard is worked twice to three-times a year while, in the cellar, vinification is traditional; plot by plot, using indigenous yeasts and pigeages (punching down the cap of grape skins and seeds). Maturation lasts for between 16-18 months, in barrels (around 25% new wood). This domain is particularly renowned for producing wines with perfect finesse and balance.
On the nose, this cuvée expresses ripe fruit aromas (cherry) with hints of pepper and liquorice. Seductive and pure in the mouth with abundant, fine tannins, juicy consistency and a lovely fruity finish.

Volnay 1er Cru Les Fremiets Joseph Voillot (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Échine de porc basse température, Tournedos à la moelle, Navarin d'agneau .
