  • Goedhuis, November 2018

    An extremely well placed lieu dit, below the famous Nuits 1er Cru Les Boudots, on the border with Vosne Romanée’s premiers crus, just a stone’s throw from Aux Malconsorts. An incredibly striking wine, full of bright red cherry and cranberry fruits. On the palate it is a bomb of red fruits. Incredibly appealing with a subtle tannic structure, it is bright and lively on the finish. Delicious.

  • Neal Martin, January 2019, Score: 87-89

    The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Au Bas de Combe, from the village crus just below Les Boudots, has a straightforward and quite open bouquet. There is purity rather than power. The palate is crisp and fresh, with crunchy black currant and bilberry fruit, and quite strict and linear. I am seeking more substance toward the finish here, and a touch more persistence. 2020 - 2028

  • Burghound, Janaury 2019, Score: 88-91

    A discreet touch of wood sets off the agreeably fresh nose that combines spice and earth wisps with those of red and dark currant. Here too there is good volume if not necessarily impressive density to the attractively textured flavors that terminate in a youthfully austere finish. The moderately structured effort should reward up to a decade of keeping. Drink 2025+

  • Wine Advocate, January 2019, Score: 88-90

    The 2017 Nuits-Saint-Georges Au Bas de Combe was a little muted and compressed by transient reduction when I tasted it from barrel, but it's a promising wine, exhibiting notes of rich soil, berries and game bird, framed by a touch of smoky oak. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied and satiny, with nice depth and flesh.

  • Decanter, November 2018, Score: 92

    Made with grapes from a 0.25ha parcel that has now passed its half-century, this is a gentle, approachable Nuit that has good old-vine concentration but not too much tannin. Dark plum and black cherry fruit flavours are complemented by 15% new wood. Drink 2021-2027

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

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.
