This Bourgogne Pinot Noir has a striking balance of fruit and earthy notes.

Having helmed the iconic Domaine Hudelot-Noellat since 2008, Charles Van Canneyt is well known among burgundy connoisseurs.  Charles is Alain Hudelot’s grandson and a very talented and skilled winemaker in his own right. Through his extensive network of Burgundy’s finest growers, Charles sources excellent grapes. By style, it’s aligned with the family wines, pure and terroir transparent.

The Bourgogne Pinot Noir is sourced out of the Hautes Côtes de Nuits, a cooler area delivering elegant and savoury Pinots. The nose is delicate with notes of red berries, lots of energy as well as black tea, and subtle dry leaf flavours. The palate is light footed and delivers a delicate attack with a silky structure. It can be paired with game meat, charcuterie, roast poultry and subtle cow cheeses. It’s perfect to drink now or it can be kept for a few years. 100% Pinot Noir.

"This is the kind of Bourgogne Pinot Noir you can't get away from. The spices, fruit notes and earthy tones are very well balanced, for a highly pleasurable wine, full of complexity and highly drinkable now."

Charles Van Canneyt buys must through an enviable network of top quality growers. His aim is to work with likeminded vignerons, who are respectful of their soil and who have exceptionally well-located vineyards. After being pressed, the wine is collected to be aged in Charles’ cellar. Maturation is undertaken in French oak barrels without new oak for twelve months.
