Domaine Jean Guiton, Volnay Les Petits Poisots, 2019
The colour is delicate, bright ruby, with light garnet reflections. The nose has aromas of violet, redcurrant, and cherry. As it ages, notes of spices and cooked prune develop. Spicy, floral, and dark cherry and blueberry fruit characteristics with wafts of violets. The palate has well integrated tannins and a lingering finish.
Ideal with duck, goose and game.
Guillaume Guiton is based in Bligny-lès-Beaune, the other side of the RN74 from Volnay. Things are very simple chez Guillaume as he never overworks the wines, preferring to allow their natural character to shine through, which means there is great village definition throughout the range.
