Rouge Les Voillenots
BACKGROUND

The intimate Domaine Coffinet-Duvernay is located in the illustrious village of Chassagne, in the southern Côte de Beaune. The estate is owned by Phillippe Duvernay and his partner Laura Coffinet who set out on their winemaking venture with just seven vineyards, including the Grand Cru Batard Montrachet. The estate encompasses seven hectares across the appellation in total, four of which are dedicated to its outstanding white wine, in particular Chassagne Chardonnay, and three are dedicated to red. This specialist estate produces beautifully crafted wines that capture the intense aromas and flavor of their distinguished terroir like few other boutique wineries in the region. Capable of aging for decades, these impeccable wines have never been available in the United States before now.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

Located on the lower slopes, just below the village, the plot of “Voillenots Dessus” is on a clay and limestone marl moderately deep soil. Stony in its upper part, the basement draining, offers a wealth vines and steady development each year. The age of the vine makes a fairly easy control yields. Maturity, often very good, allows easy and an interesting wine concentration which represents well the soil of Chassagne pinot noir.

TASTING NOTES

Bright ruby color. Nose of fresh raspberry and wild logan berries. Spicy potpourri with ripe and lush cherry and plum aftertaste. Quite structured and very well balanced acidity. Great for now and the next five years. Delightful with chicke n or gamebirds such as pheasant. It is a superb complement to mushroom sauces, and works well with Coq au Vin. Its distinctive minerality also complements ham and pork roasts
