  • Goedhuis, December 2019

    Just below Richebourg, this vineyard has deep rich layers of clay and the wines always show the stunning cranberry and red cherry fruit so typical of Vosne Romanée. This is gradually becoming my favourite of the Vosne grands crus. This is a polished, poised wine and a superb portrayal of how grace and elegance can lie beside power and intensity. Beautifully perfumed in a red fruit style, the tannins are silky and lace-like. So long and so very graceful.

  • Neal Martin, January 2020, Score: 93-95

    The 2018 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru, matured in 50% new oak like all the domaine’s grand crus, has a tightly wound bouquet of black cherries, raspberry coulis and touches of bergamot tea and briar. Lovely definition, but bashful at this early stage. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and a smooth texture. There is not enormous depth of grip to this RSV, though it has a spring in its step on the persistent finish. Drink 2023-2050

  • Burghound, January 2020, Score: 91-94

    This is very ripe with notes of mocha and port on the liqueur-like aromas of cassis, spice and discreet floral nuances. There is better freshness to the super-sleek, intense and refined middle weight flavors that retain good detail while also flashing impressive power on the sappy and acidulated bon bons finish. This is one of those atypical 2018s that is riper than I personally prefer. Drink 2035+

  • Wine Advocate, January 2020, Score: 95-97

    The 2018 Romanée-Saint-Vivant Grand Cru reveals a lovely bouquet of rose petals, wild berries, exotic spices and rich soil tones. This is followed by a full-bodied, deep and multidimensional palate that's concentrated and serious, built around exquisitely refined but abundant tannins, concluding with a long and expansive finish.

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2020, Score: 96-99

    Imperial purple robe, the bouquet has beautifully succulent yet also vibrant dark fruit, a feeling of nobility, the vineyard triumphing over any possible excess of the vintage, There is some blacker fruit on the palate but it is still absolutely vibrant. To say glossy doesn’t do it justice. Very long refined finish. Bravo.

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

Romanée Saint Vivant

Romanée-St-Vivant, which takes its name from the monastery of St-Vivant founded in c. 900, is a Grand Cru vineyard in Vosne-Romanée on the Côte de Nuits in Burgundy. It is the largest of Vosne-Romanée's six Grands Crus and produces red wine only. The vineyard is located on the slope to the north of the town of Vosne-Romanée and is the nearest vineyard to this village. Romanée-Saint-Vivant's soils are deep and rich in clay and lime, which means the wines of Romanée-St-Vivant are usually lighter and less powerful than its neighbours'. Domaine de la Romanée Conti is the largest proprietor, owning over half of the area's 9.5 ha.
