Domaine Poulleau Corton Charlemagne 2017
Domaine Poulleau is a lovely 7.3 hectare domaine located in Volnay. The domaine was created by Michel Poulleau in 1950 and today is diligently managed by Michel’s son Thierry Poulleau and his wife Florence; 1983 was Thierry’s first vintage. The domaine has ownership in 7 appellations and produces 93% red wines mostly in Volnay but include Bourgogne, Beaune, Chorey, Aloxe & Corton Charlemagne. These grapes are 100% hand harvested with a severe triage before fermentation and represent classic terroir and fruit focused wines. Thierry is very judicious with his use of oak, always respecting the individuality of the parcel’s terroir. We were very happy to get our hands on this beautiful, extremely rare grand cru Corton Charlemagne. It will be noble, rich, multi-layered, stony, pure and beautiful.
