  • Goedhuis, December 2019

    A dense, deep Bourgogne Rouge, focusing on darker fruits. This balances intensely sweet fruit with the clear, bright freshness which was Charles’s goal for the vintage. A wonderful example of pure Côte de Nuits fruit.

  • Neal Martin, January 2020, Score: 86

    The 2018 Bourgogne Rouge was the only cru in bottle at the time of my tasting. It has attractive dark cherry and bergamot scents on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannins, very pretty fruit and a pleasant sharpness on the finish. 2019 - 2023

  • Burghound, January 2020, Score: 86

    A very ripe nose features notes of plum, cassis, black cherry and soft earth influences. There is fine volume and acceptable verve to the concentrated and delicious flavors that display a touch of bitter cherry pit character on the ever-so-slightly warm finale. This is attractive but it would be fair to say that it's very 2018 in style. Drink 2022+

  • Wine Advocate, January 2020, Score: 88

    The 2018 Bourgogne Rouge is generous and inviting, bursting with aromas of cherries, blackberries, dried flowers and spices. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, its velvety tannins cloaked in ripe, succulent fruit. This pleasure-bent bottling represents remarkable value. Drink 2020-2035

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2020, Score: 89

    This is a significant cuvée amounting to 20,000 bottles from 18 plots below Chambolle. Fine bright purple, with plenty of fruit energy as well. Luscious ripe raspberries. This is really delicious. It is very elegant on the palate, having been bottled a little bit earlier to keep the fruit. Very long fresh and stylish.

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

Bourgogne

This blanket regional appellation can apply to wines throughout Burgundy (60% of the area's production) as long as they comply with regulations relating to grape type, yield and alcohol content. Reds and roses are from Pinot Noir or Gamay. Whites are Chardonnay. They are usually the most straightforward of the Burgundy wines, and as a result are the least expensive and the most approachable upon release. In the hands of a more serious producer these can represent exceptional value and quality. The wines are made with the same care and attention to detail as their grander wines. However, they may not qualify for a village or communal appellation because the vines are too young or the vineyard area is outside the appellation boundary.
