Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat dates back to 1964, when Odile Noellat and Alain Hudelot married and inherited quite the portfolio of fine Burgundy plots, including a 5 ha parcel of Vosne- Romanée.
Nowadays, the domaine’s portfolio traverses all of Burgundy’s glittering appellations, including Richebourg, Romanée st Vivant, Vosne Romanée les Malconsorts, Les Beaumonts and Les Suchots. The vines are old, dating as far back as 1920. Planted with fine clones across the entire vineyard, winemaking is traditional and selection precise, with fermentation taking place in concrete vats.
Presided over by Alain Hudelot-Noëllat until 2007, when his grandson, Charles van Canneyt took over the domaine. Charles’s philosophy is to create wines that exude charm, a sense of depth, purity and finesse.
Named after one of the region's commercial hubs, Nuits-St-Georges, this as an appellation given to the lesser wine-producing villages of the Côte de Nuits, which is the northern half of the Côte d'Or escarpment. The production is predominantly, but not exclusively, red wine from Pinot Noir. Wines from Fixin, Brochon, Prémeaux, Comblanchien, and Corgoloin may be sold as Côte de Nuits-Villages. In the best examples these wines are above Bourgogne level but below the village wine of the Côte de Nuit's most important appellations such as Nuits St Georges itself, Vosne Romanee, Chambolle Musigny, Morey St Denis and Gevrey Chambertin. The wines are light to medium bodied and rarely improve with more than 4-5 years bottle age, but for youthful drinking can offer excellent value.
