Domaine Joseph Voillot Pommard Rugiens

What is the difference between the south and the north of Burgundy? It’s a good question and can mostly be answered by simply saying that the two regions have vastly different terroirs that produce somewhat different wines. I say somewhat different because at this price point, you can find some awfully good Premier Cru wines in the Côte de Beaune, like Voillot’s Pommard Rugiens. This is a rich wine, as Pommards tend to be, but it lacks much of the rusticity that one associates with Pommard. That is mostly likely due to the exceptionally light wine making touch at Voillot.
