Domaine Hudelot-Noellat Bourgogne Rouge 2017

BH87, WA87
Pinot Noir

Aromas of smoky berries, sweet cherries and rich soil introduce the 2017 Bourgogne Rouge, a medium to full-bodied, ample wine with supple tannins and an open-knit, giving profile. - WA87

A super-fresh nose reflects notes of pretty red berries and a hint of spice. There is good cut and excellent punch to the utterly delicious flavors that exhibit only a trace of rusticity on the nicely complex and focused finale. As is often the case, this is a very good example of the genre and would make a fine choice for an all-around house red.- BH87

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
