Joseph Voillot Bourgogne Rouge drinks like a baby Volnay. The grapes come from four parcels which comprise 4.3 acres were the vines average age is over 50 years old. The vines for the Bourgogne Rouge are located immediately below the Volnay Villages vineyards. This a Bourgogne of unusual pedigree, also a small percentage of Beaune premier cru fruit is thrown in to this wine. In addition, this traditional wine is raised entirely in older barrels rather than in tank. A serious bottle of Bourgogne Rouge that drinks way above its price point!
Jancis Robinson (Richard Memming MW) 16.5 pts! Leathery nose some blackberry notes and furry tannic grip. Long, medicinal notes on the finish. Very moreish – has a lovely authentic savoury character that is already very open. (RH) (Drink between 2020-2030)
Neal Martin the 2017 Bourgogne Rouge has a lovely brambly red berry bouquet - simple but effective and with plenty of fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with soft tannin, light and breezy with just a little attenuation towards the finish. Fine. (Drink between 2019-2023)
