  • Neal Martin, January 2022, Score: 85-87

    The 2020 Bourgogne Rouge has a fresh blueberry and wild strawberry-scented bouquet with light floral notes. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, fine acidity, taut and fresh though it just lacks little depth on the finish. Still, it is fresh and breezy. Drink 2023-2026

  • Burghound, January 2022, Score: 87-89

    This is almost always an excellent wine in the context of its place in the Burgundian hierarchy and 2020 is no exception. There is excellent freshness to the airy and ripe dark berry fruit aromas that are liberally laced by earth and discreet spice wisps. The racy and appealingly textured middle weight flavors possess solid depth and persistence on the balanced finale. As is usually the case, this should readily permit early accessibility. Outstanding. Top value. Drink: 2023+

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2022, Score: 86-87

    Rich deep purple, with a very perfumed, ultra raspberry bouquet – very attractive but quite extreme. On the palate the flavours are perhaps a little bit too rich, Christmas cake character, hyper concentrated for Burgundy.

  • WK, January 2022, Score: 88 +

    Revealing aromas of cherries, raspberries and spices, the 2020 Bourgogne Rouge is medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety, with fine concentration, lively acids and a long finish. It's a terrific cuvée that punches above its weight.

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.
