Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2012

    A beautifully attractive and pleasing style with its silky tannins and graceful raspberry and strawberry fruit flavours. As its names suggest it is full of charm and will be very rewarding indeed.

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2013,
    Score: 89-92

    (from 30+ year old vines). A discreet backdrop of wood frames the highly expressive airy, cool and ultra-pure red orchard fruit aromas. The middle weight flavors display equally good purity with around and supple texture before concluding in an unusually powerful finish in the context of what is typical for the appellation yet this is essentially a wine of finesse and understatement. Drink 2017+

  • DC

    Decanter, March 2013,
    Score: 17.5

    Elegant, floral, pretty Charmes that beautifully expresses the vintage and terroir. Silky tannins, good intensity and length. Drink 2015 - 2022.

  • JR

    Jancis Robinson, January 2013,
    Score: 17.5

    Relatively heady and then with lots of fruit concentration. Still quite youthful. Lots of both fruit and tannin but not brutal. Long. Drink 2018-2030

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

Chambolle-Musigny

The wines of Chambolle Musigny are like no other. They can be superbly delicate, yet mindblowingly complex. Of all the northern Burgundy appellations, they are the most ethereal, and as a result the most feminine. Most of the Chambolle Musigny vineyard area is encompassed in its Village and Premier Cru appellations including the robust Beaux Bruns, the splendidly mineral Le Cras and the poised yet powerful Les Amoureuses. It produces only two Grand Crus - the round and rich Bonnes Mares which it shares with Morey St. Dénis, as well as what could be described as the Stradivarius of grand crus, Musigny.
