Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2015

    This is a youthful purple colour, with a scented raspberry nose. Good breadth and an appealing drive of freshness provide substance and depth on the finish.

    Score: 87-89

    The 2014 Chambolle-Musigny Villages, from 1.85 hectares of vines planed in 1955, was politely requesting a little more cohesion when I tasted it from barrel. The palate is better with slightly chewy tannins, a keen line of acidity and a slightly blocky but fresh finish that should gain finesse by the time of bottling. It might just be looking for an upswing once incarcerated in glass so that it settles at the top of my banded score. Drink 2016-2021

  • BURG

    Score: 87-90

    This too is exceptionally pretty with a layered array of various red berries, violet and gentle wood nuances. There is once again a lovely sense of vibrancy to the delineated, sleek and very Chambolle-like flavors that also evidence a hint of bitter cherry on the youthfully austere finish. Drink 2020+

    Score: 7.5-8/10

    Floral, earthy, fine and fresh – this verges on austere at the moment but it will be fabulous given three to five years.

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.
