Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat: Terroir & Pinot Noir

Maxime Lecoq | July 28, 2021

Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat all started with Alain Hudelot in 1962 and is now under the reign of his grandson Charles van Canneyt since 2008.

With a total of 10 hectares, we have wines that can truly showcase the original idea of the ever so important Burgundian terroirs across the 15 designations of the Domaine. Charles is trying to bring tannins and structure to the Pinot Noir fruit while retaining a certain freshness, including up to 20% of stems within the juice of certain vintages.

With some extremely old vines, planted in 1920, for the parcels of Romanée-Saint-Vivant, or Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots and Les Beaumonts, you will discover an extra layer of complexity that only comes from the reverential age of these vines. Most of the remaining vines including Richebourg, Clos de Vougeot, and Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes were planted in the 1950s and a small percentage in the 1970s and 1980s.

Richebourg: powerful, lengthy, and complex whereas the Romanée-Saint-Vivant will be all about balance, finesse, and elegance. These two bottles are proving to be a very different representation of the best on offer.

Clos de Vougeot: mineral, full-bodied and classic.

Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes: sheer fruitiness and finesse.

Vosne-Romanée Premiers Crus: with vines that are more than 100 years old, will provide two different experiences. Les Suchots being more of a rustic powerhouse and Les Beaumonts while remaining powerful will entice you with floral aromas.

The two Villages wines will bring some fantastic value for money for an instant drinking pleasure bottle to enjoy right now.
