    Goedhuis, December 2016

    A sensational cuvée this year, highlighting the huge success of the Clos in 2015. Bright red colour, this is full of raspberries with subtle Valrhona chocolate undertones. A lovely balance between sweetness and vibrant freshness. So full of life, it is supremely elegant.

    Score: 91-93

    The 2015 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is aged in 45-50% new oak. The bouquet is very well defined with crisp red berry fruit, damp undergrowth, hints of cassis developing with time. The palate is medium-bodied, quite tensile and strict, linear, with a brisk saline finish that urges you back for another sip. Superb—though it faces tough challengers from some of the premier crus. Drink Date 2018 - 2032

    Burghound, January 2017,
    Score: 93-95

    This is the first wine to display really prominent wood influence though it's not so much to overshadow the sauvage and earthy red and dark berry-suffused nose. This is also rich, powerful and concentrated yet the big-bodied flavors possess a sleek mouth feel as the firm structure is already well-integrated on the mildly austere finale. This is also very much built-to-age and is going to require extended cellaring. Don't miss! Drink 2032+

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.
