This Griotte-Chambertin Grand Cru is ethereal, gracious and very deep.

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 tiny 2.69ha Grand Cru Griotte-Chambertin is yielding very perfumed, utterly delicate wines with silky structures. Ideally located below the Chambertin Grand Cru vineyard, a few producers are sharing the joy of making such a wine.

On the palate, it is ethereal, wonderfully perfumed and supremely gracious. Sweet spice, mint, chalk and blood orange show striking inner sweet- ness. Subtle and nuanced, with striking persistence, this mid-weight Griotte exudes balance, class and pedigree. It can be paired with game, charcoaled beef or cow cheese. It can be decanted for 40 minutes before serving or cellared up until 2035+. 100% Pinot Noir.

"The Griotte-Chambertin grand cru has the fragrance, the powerful attack and length though it seems flawless on the palate. A rare wine, always giving and majestic."

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 with 20% new oak for twelve months.
