Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, January 2011

    A lesser known 1er Cru that is consistently more like neighbouring Chambolle due to its terroir. The 2009 is ultra refined with an aromatic nose of violets, pink grapefruit and silky minerality. Ethereal yet profound.

    Score: 88-90

    The Petits Vougeot has very good lift, if not the breeding on the nose. The palate has crunchy red-berried fruit on the entry, a hint of spice and citrus lemon that leads to a brittle, tannic finish.

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2011,
    Score: 89-91

    A lightly spiced and distinctly earthy nose of primary dark berry fruit aromas is followed by fleshy and impressively intense middle weight flavors that possess plenty of dry extract that buffers well the otherwise firm tannins on the persistent finish. This is not overly complex though there is enough material and development potential that it may eventually possess more.

    Bright crimson. Intensity and definition and energy. Well done and not expensive. Very fresh and cleansing.

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

Vougeot

Unlike the other predominant Côte de Nuits appellations, Vougeot's main appellation is its onlygrand cru vineyard, Clos de Vougeot. It is by far the largest grand cru of the area totalling over 50 hectares with over 40 owners rumoured to own vines. As a result, its vineyards run from the flat, clay-dominated valley floor to the well-drained, venerated sloped hillsides suggesting that its quality ending on where it is grown. As a result, it is often the least valued of the grand crus and can offer excellent value, particularly in good vintages where ripeness has been attained.
