I first tasted the 2002 Les Champans from Jopeph Voillot at the restaurant situated directly across the street from the domaine’s cellar in Volnay. It was two years following the harvest and the wine had an intense core of sweet fruit. Curious to see how the wine is evolving, I opened a bottle from my cellar. The nose is beginning to show mature notes, but it is still in an adolescent stage. In the mouth, the sweetness of the fruit is fading and moving towards the sour end of the spectrum. I believe that the wine will evolve into an outstanding wine, but it is currently at an awkward place.
