Trip to Europe (Bourgogne-France-Fall 2011)...Tasting at Domaine Michel Voarick

(Day 4)
Our last stop of the day was at Domaine Michel Voarick in Aloxe-Corton. Among all the producers we visited in Burgundy in this trip, (except for Olivier Leflaive where we had lunch at,) this was the only producer which has a public tasting room.

We had a private tour of their cave and tasted 2010 barrel samples as well as previous vintages.

2009 Pernand-Vergelesses (blanc)
2009 Corton-Charlemagne
2010 Corton Renardes…only 2 barrels are made
2010 Corton Clos du Roi
2010 Corton Charlemagne
2008 Corton-Charlemagne
2009 Aloxe-Corton
2008 Aloxe-Corton

We met the owner, Jean-Marc Voarick (Michel’s son) at the domaine. He mentioned that the production of 2010 vintage is about 60%, compared to 2009 vintage, but the quality is promising.
