Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2016

    This vineyard often produces a big, broad style of Nuits St Georges and the 2015 is the perfect paradigm. It is full of wild bramble flavours supported by hints of liquorice and dark chocolate. It has a driving intensity on its turbocharged finish.

    Score: 90-92

    The 2015 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru les Murgers has a relatively candied bouquet compared to winemaker Charles van Canneyt's other crus, hints of baking powder and thyme infusing the perfumed red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, well-judged acidity, quite "solid" in the mouth with a dense, generous finish. Not quite the length of the Vougeot here, but it is still very delicious. Drink Date 2018 - 2030

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2017,
    Score: 90-93

    Moderate wood influence isn't really enough to detract from the attractively fresh aromas of notably ripe black cherry, raspberry and newly turned earth. Like the Petits Vougeots the intense and muscular flavors possess a sleek mouth feel and excellent volume while displaying very fine persistence on the firm, complex and impressively persistent finish. Note that at least some patience will be required. Outstanding. Drink 2025+

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.
