  • Goedhuis, December 2017

    There is a distinct shift in gear as we reach the Beaumonts. It was one of the first to finish malolactic fermentation, and thus is showing a more complete picture than some others in this cellar that lagged behind. One of the Côte de Nuits’s highest premiers crus, at 300m elevation, it was able to sit out the worst of the frost. There is a sweet length to the fruit and an aromatic charm evocative of Charles’s finest work.

  • Neal Martin, December 2017, Score: 92-94

    The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaumonts has an enticing and yet understated bouquet with Morello cherries, wild strawberry and rose petal scents, quite complex if not intense. There is something almost nonchalant here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp and focused, the chalkiness of the terroir coming through and lending energy on the long and tensile finish. Excellent. Drink 2021-2040

  • Burghound, January 2018, Score: 91-94

    Here the aromatic profile is markedly different with its dense dark berry fruit, tea, spice and violet aromas that are trimmed in just enough wood to notice. Like the Petits Vougeots the positively gorgeous mouthfeel of the medium weight flavors is satiny and delivers outstanding persistence on the balanced and intensely mineral-driven finale. This is sufficiently supple that it could be approached young or held up to a decade first. Outstanding. Drink: 2024+

  • Stephen Tanzer, January 2018, Score: 91-93

    Bright, dark red with ruby highlights. Very showy nose offers scents of black raspberry, bitter chocolate, flowers and penetrating minerality. Less gassy than the last couple of samples but still quite youthfully taut, conveying excellent sappy energy and lift to its thick dark berry and mineral flavors. Finishes with firm but ripe tannins and rising, palate-staining persistence. There was no frost here, noted Charles van Canneyt, but even the young vines did not produce a big crop.

  • Decanter, January 2018, Score: 92

    Charles Van Canneyt’s vines are in the upper part of Beaux Monts where the soils are thinner, so although this is never the most opulent example of this climat, the 2016 is lovely. Aromas of ripe, dark fruits, smoked duck and rich spice precede a cool, medium-full wine, its ample core of cool fruit underpinned by a tense, chalky chassis of tannin. Drink 2024-2040

  • Jancis Robinson, January 2018, Score: 16.5+

    Broad and fruity – perhaps not quite as much drive as some. But comfortingly cosy and sweet. Very long. Drink 2025-2040

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.Read less

Region

Vosne Romanée

The vineyards of the modest village of Vosne Romanée are arguably the most sought after in the Côte d'Or. It is host to excellent Village and Premier Cru wines, but it is its most famous Grand Crusthat truly stand out: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Grands Echézeaux, Echézeaux, Romanée St. Vivant and La Romanée as well as Cros Parentoux, a Premier Cru vineyard which attracts Grand Cru attention (and prices). Vosne-Romanée can be remarkably robust and powerful, yet be charming and fleshy giving it one of the most diverse styles of the region.
