Goedhuis, January 2015
A truly superb wine and one of the very finest reds in the Côte de Beaune for the vintage. Absolutely sensational, with extraordinary texture of rich dark wild berried fruits. So full and ripe, yet not excessive and completely in balance. A real stunner.
Neal Martin, December 2014
The 2013 Pommard 1er Cru les Rugiens has a gorgeous, floral bouquet that just blossoms in the glass with violet-infused black cherries and raspberry aromas. This is beautiful and very pure. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, tensile tannins, plenty of spice and white pepper decorating the structured finish that lingers long in the mouth. 'tis a but a hail-defying success! Drink: 2017 - 2030
Domaine Joseph Voillot
The Voillots have been winemakers for 5 generations. They produce 17 appellations from 35 parcels in 10 hectares across 4 communes including Pommard and Volnay. Since 1995, Joseph's hearty and jolly son-in-law, Jean-Pierre Charlot, has taken over the domaine. His personality makes it worth the trip alone. Utterly sincere and fantastically funny, we always leave with a smile on our face. Luckily the wines are superb as well - terroir-driven, classically styled and silky - they are hallmarks of top quality Côte de Beaune reds.
A long popular appellation, Pommard is yet another exclusive red wine area which produces by far the most structured reds of the Côte de Beaune. It extracts rich body and long ageing potential from the limestone/iron-rich clay soil. Some examples can be markedly rustic, yet as time has passed and winemaking know-how has improved, Pommard's wines are becoming softer and more approachable when young. Its vines cover 317 hectares of which over a third are premier cru vineyards. Several have pronounced following and even one, Les Rugiens, is being pushed to become a grand cru.
