"The quintessence of great Burgundy!" -John Gilman
Hudelot-Noëllat is one of the most exciting domaines in Burgundy.
Since the arrival of Charles Van Canneyt, the wines of Hudelot-Noëllat have reached a whole new level and savvy Burgundy collectors are chasing them down.
I'm going to keep this short - Hudelot-Noëllat is on fire right now. These are limited and will disappear.
The quality of Hudelot-Noëllat's villages wines is shocking in 2012.
We've been watching Hudelot-Noëllat's rapid rise through the ranks of elite Burgundy. With that said, the 2012s stand out: they represent the result of an insane amount of momentum meeting the right vintage. The 2012s reached a new level of clarity and elegance.
John Gilman echoes our feelings when he writes: "This is a beautifully pure, transparent and elegant set of wines that are absolutely the quintessence of great Burgundy!"
One of the most exciting things about Hudelot-Noëllat is that pricing hasn't caught up with quality.
This translates to some of the best values we know for Chambolle-Musigny and Vosne-Romanée.
Out of all of Burgundy's villages, Chambolle is the easiest to fall for. And the prices certainly reflect this. Finding a good village Chambolle under the $70 range is very difficult. Chambolle is so loved because of the way it delivers finesse, perfume and silken elegance. Hudelot-Noëllat produces luxurious Burgundies that capture all of the sensual, heartbreaking qualities of Chambolle. They are immediately enjoyable, but not over-the-top: they are balanced and energetic with impressive focus and firm structures.
If Chambolle is silk, than Vosne is velvet. Hudelot-Noëllat's Vosne combines a seductive texture with dark fruits, spice and earth that make the wines of this village so compelling. Again, finding compelling Vosne at affordable pricing is very difficult and Hudelot-Noëllat really delivers.
I'm going to wrap this up. As I said, these are gorgeous Burgundies that people are really excited about. People have been calling us up for 6-packs and cases. I expect these to be gone before the weekend is over. Please give us your ideal order and we'll try our best.
