Description

The 2008 Vosne-Romanee Les Beaux Monts flows with dark cherries, flowers and sweet spices. This shows a touch more freshness and verve than the Murgers. It is an attractive wine to drink now and over the next few years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. - WA89

A discreet touch of wood sets off a cool and elegant aromatic profile of wonderfully airy, even lacy red and blue pinot fruit, pungent stone notes and ample spice hints that also extend to the focused, powerful and solidly concentrated middle weight flavors that are quite fine and vibrant on the mineral-inflected and impressively long finish. This is a wine of understatement and finesse that is really lovely. - BH92

The Winery

Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat is a Burgundy producer of high-quality Pinot Noir from prestigious sites in the Côte de Nuits. The domaine was founded in Vougeot by Alain Hudelot in 1962, although the Hudelot family can trace its history in Burgundy back to before the French Revolution. Hudelot married Odile Noëllat in the 1970s, which increased the domaine's holdings; the Noëllat family had its own significant history in Burgundy. In 2008 Alain retired and his grandson, Charles van Canneyt, took over running the estate.

The domaine has roughly 10 hectares (24 acres) of vineyards with plots in four villages and in 15 different designated sites. The highest tier of Pinot Noir comes from the grand cru vineyards Richbourg, Romanée-Saint-Vivant and Clos de Vougeot. Hudelot-Noëllatt has a reputation for high vine ages, which it maintains through methodical replanting. The average age is more than 50 years, with several vineyard plantings dating back to 1920, including parcels in Romanée-Saint-Vivant. The domaine makes a Bourgogne Aligoté along with its numerous premier cru and villages-level Pinot Noir.- Information by Wine Searcher
