Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, January 2007

    Murgers is on the Vosne Romanée side of the vineyard, which adds a gentle softness to the sometimesslightly rustic style of Nuits St. Georges. And this showed in the 2005. Brimming with copious notes of morello cherry and light spice, this wine's superfine tannins gently envelope the palate.

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2007,
    Score: 89-92

    Noticeable but more moderate wood spice frames the ripe mix of earthy dark fruit and underbrush aromas that can also be found on the robust, pure and intense flavors that display a distinct gaminess on the textured and solidly long and dusty finish supported by ripe tannins. Good potential here. (89-92)/2013+

  • JR

    Jancis Robinson, January 2007,
    Score: 17

    Dense, true, lively nose. Full of frank fruit and no artifice, A very good whole that's wellbalanced and constituted. Good fruit/tannin/acid balance.

Producer

Domaine Alain Hudelot-Noëllat

The Hudelots are an ancient Burgundian family whose ancestry can be traced back to Chambolle since before the French Revolution. Needless to say, wine has been in their blood for almost as long. Alain Huedlot began his wine career in 1954 working for his father and other local growers. At the ripe young age of 20, he started renting vineyards from his family in Chambolle Musigny until eventually receiving other small parcels from his father. Following a passionate and whirlwind romance with the granddaughter of Charles Noellat, he married despite protests from her family. This controversial union ensured additional vineyards despite a harrying and lengthy legal battle. Today the domaine owns a total of 10 well-situated hectares, which are split over 5 communes. Alain Hudelot’s grandson Charles Van Canneyt is a man on a mission. Having arrived at the domaine from Champagne only six years ago, he is already considered one of the brightest young talents in the region. These wines are wonderful examples of traditionally styled Burgundy - superbly pure and focused with an undeniable sense of terroir.

Region

Nuits-Saint-Georges

The second largest town after Beaune, Nuits St. Georges is known for ample wines that have textured tannins and rich fruit. Unlike other famous Côte de Nuits villages, it has no Grand Crus but does have a handful of exceptional premier cru vineyards such as Clos de l'Arlot, Les Pruliers and AuxMurgers. Its wines can be occasionally rustic, and this sets them apart from many of the more northern appellations as well as from the neighbouring Côte de Beaune whose wines (apart from Pommard) tend to be less structured and more fruit forward. This is no doubt due to a slightly increased presence of clay especially on the Primeaux-Prissey area of the appellation. Notable producers include Domaine de l'Arlot, Jean Grivot and Meo-Camuzet.
