Established in Vougeot in 1962 by Alain Hudelot, Hudelot-Noëllat has quietly risen to the top echelon of Côte de Nuits producers. In 2008, Alain retired and his grandson Charles van Canneyt took over while in his early 20s! The new generation follows the traditional style and farms with sustainable practices. With 10 hectares of vineyards planted across 15 different appellations, including the Grands Crus Romanée-Saint-Vivant, Richebourg and Clos de Vougeot, Hudelot-Noëllat is known for its old vines which average more than 50 years old as well as several vineyards dating back to 1920.

‘The Hudelot-Noëllat wines are always the most elegant in a line-up. Their fresh acidity, deft use of oak and terroir-driven style appeals to the traditional Burgundy lover seeking long-ageing wines.’ – Roland Peens

Tasting notes:
‘A great vintage, indeed the greatest since the legendary 2005,’ writes Allen Meadows of Burghound.com. Offering unbelievable purity of fruit and a fine balance along with the magical ‘Burgundy X-factor’, we have not tasted such delicious young, red Burgundy. The hot and dry 2015 vintage produced majestically ripe fruit but, unlike 2003 or 2009, the red wines have retained incredible freshness and fine aromatics. The 2015 whites require more careful selection and are likely to be over-shadowed by the chiselled 2014s. Make no mistake, 2015 Burgundy is a great vintage, although quality firmly resides with the red wines instead of the white’ – Neal Martin

'I found the Hudelot 2015s to be generally excellent and in particular the Vosne 1ers showed a great deal of promise… the domaine has once again made a first-rate Bourgogne.’ – Allen Meadows

'This is the first wine to display really prominent wood influence though it's not so much to overshadow the sauvage and earthy red and dark berry-suffused nose. This is also rich, powerful and concentrated yet the big-bodied flavors possess a sleek mouth feel as the firm structure is already well-integrated on the mildly austere finale. This is also very much built-to-age and is going to require extended cellaring.' – Wine Advocate 91-93/100
