  • Goedhuis, December 2019

    An extremely well-placed lieu dit, below the famous Nuits premier cru Les Boudots, on the border with Vosne Romanée’s premiers crus, just a stone’s throw from Aux Malconsorts. Unsurprisingly it is quite a bold style. Delightfully poised between powerful dark spiced flavours and an appealing crisp crunchy freshness on the finish, Charles is particularly pleased with this cuvée in 2018.

  • Neal Martin, January 2020

    The 2018 Nuits Saint-Georges Au Bas de Combe Village has a pretty dark cherry, briar and undergrowth bouquet, well-defined and nicely focused. The palate is medium-bodied and quite saline with good acidity. A discreet meatiness comes through toward the finish and a dash of five-spice appears on the aftertaste. This is a fascinating Nuits Saint-George. 2020 - 2032

  • Burghound, January 2020, Score: 89-91

    This is almost as spicy as the Vosne with its range of anise, sandalwood, earth and tea-like nuances adding breadth to the violet-tinged dark berry fruit aromas. The sleek, intense and delineated medium-bodied flavors possess even better depth and persistence on the relatively powerful finish. This is a very good Nuits villages and recommended. Drink 2028+. Oustanding Top value

  • Wine Advocate, January 2020, Score: 89-91

    The 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges Au Bas de Combe reveals a perfumed bouquet of raspberries, rose petals, orange rind and potpourri, complemented by rich soil tones and a deft framing of oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, supple and fleshy, with an open-knit core of ripe but succulent fruit. This is an especially elegant Nuits, concluding a lovely triumvirate of communal bottlings chez Hudelot-Noellat this year.

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.
