Volnay Vieilles Vignes 2018 is a fine wine from Burgundy produced by Domaine Joseph Voillot. It is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes from old vineyards in Volvay, and is a fresh and pleasant wine characterized at the same time by an interesting spicy note, resulting from aging in 20% new barrels for a period of 18 months. Volnay "Vieille Vignes" 2018 is fermented in thermoregulated stainless steel tanks and then aged in 228 liters casks, 20% new, for 18 months plus a couple of months of rest in bottle. Bright ruby red in color, it shows on the nose an intense and complex bouquet composed of fruity notes in the foreground, followed by milder notes of spices. The sip is smooth and pleasing, with silky tannins and the same fruity and spicy notes we found in the nose. The aging capacity of this wine is about 10 years.
