The Exclusivity of Hudelot-Noëllat!
Domaine Hudelot-Noellat has been producing some of the best and most rare wines in Burgundy for generations. An outstanding producer of Pinot Noir, the domaine occupies the highest quality Premier Cru and Grand Cru vineyard sites including Richebourg, Romanee-St-Vivant, and Clos de Vougeot. Today I get to offer a set of their Best Premier Cru Terroirs, Les Suchots and Les Beaumonts!
Neal Martin while writing for Vinous Media:
"...beckons you back for the next sip. This represents another impressive wine from Charles Van Canneyt." Family-owned: The estate has been owned by the Hudelot family since 1964 and is currently run by Charles van Canneyt, who is the grandson of Alain Hudelot.
Rare also means exclusive and often translates into collectible or as Allen Meadows puts it, "the Hudelot 2016s to be generally excellent and in particular the Vosne 1ers showed a great deal of promise; for value, the domaine has once again made a fine Bourgogne."

"The 2016 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru has a slightly meaty/feral bouquet, just a hint of gaminess that might become more conspicuous with bottle age. Otherwise I find this well defined and with flattering red cherry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin. There is a fine bead of acidity here, a pleasant fleshy mouthfeel towards the finish and a residual salinity that beckons you back for the next sip. This represents another impressive wine from Charles Van Canneyt. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting." NM for VM Oct 2019

"Discreet but not invisible wood serves as a relatively neutral backdrop for the exuberantly spicy and again very ripe aromas soy, hoisin, black raspberry, plum and floral scents. The generously proportioned and amply rich medium-bodied flavors brim with dry extract that imparts a sappy mouthfeel to the velvety but firm, serious and youthfully austere finale that makes clear this is going to require extended cellaring. In sum, this is an excellent Suchots." AM Jan 2018
"I found the Hudelot 2015s to be generally excellent and in particular the Vosne 1ers showed a great deal of promise; or value, the domaine has once again made a first-rate Bourgogne.
