About the Winery:   

Domaine Poulleau was founded in 1960. Michel and Jacqueline, his wife, started the business together. In 1983 their son Thierry joined the adventure. He was later joined by his wife Florence. Together they took over the management of the estate in 1996. Committed to working the soil and the vines, they have opted for integrated viticulture on the entire 8.1 hectare (20 acre) estate.

Volnay makes up about 93% of the production; the Aloxe Corton comes from a miniscule 0.26 ha (0.6 acres)

    Ratings & Reviews

    Artisan Wine's David Ulias:
    "Glass-leaping aromas/flavours of wild raspberry, juniper & cranberry... Wild mushrooms & subtle smokey aromas develop with some air. Medium-to-full bodied... Round, yet kinda rustic... Bold, yet refined! appealing/complex "whole-cluster" woodsy-ness ie not from oak!" (7/27/22)

    92 Points - Wine Enthusiast (2019):
    "Flecks of peppery spice and stony minerality accent juicy, powerfully fruity layers of strawberry, raspberry and cherry in this fresh Pinot Noir. A full-bodied, voluminous sip framed by fine, smoothing tannins, it's ready to drink now but should hold through 2029." - AI (5/1/2022)
