This 1er Cru Les Charmes is refined and complex.

Domaine Hudelot-Noellat is an iconic producer in the Côte de Nuits. The style of the Domaine is defined by elegance and purity. The vineyard “Les Charmes” is located on the Vougeot side of the village, nearby the 1er Cru “Les Amoureuses”. Hudelot-Noellat owns a tiny piece of the vineyard of 0.21ha planted in 1955.

This Chambolle 1er Cru is showing great intensity on the nose with spicy notes and a subtle sour cherry flavour. The palate is dense and elegant with a lingering clean and detailed finish. This wine is designed to age for 15 years plus. It will benefit from five to eight years cellaring but you can drink it young by decanting it an hour and a half before serving. 100% Pinot Noir.

"It’s all about the details in this beautiful Chambolle 1er Cru “les Charmes”. Charles, the winemaker has captured the energy, the spice and the elegance of one of the most beautiful cru of Chambolle."

Charles Van Canneyt, Alain Hudelot-Noellat’s grandson, took over the Domaine in 2008 and for the last few vintages he has been entirely in charge of making the wines and he does so incredibly well. The wines have never been as good as they are now. Charles has a very clear approach when making his wines concerning the style he wants to achieve- elegance and purity. In order to do this Charles is careful not to overpower the taste of the wine made from his prestigious vineyards, which are a tremendous asset. With an ideal location, old vines to very old vines and fine clones of Pinot Noir, the challenge is to give the natural expression of the grapes the strongest voice. In 2014, Charles used around 20% of the whole bunch during the winemaking. Furthermore, he is only using natural yeast, fermenting the must in concrete vats and the maturation is long but with the right balance of oak used. The oak component rarely shows in the wines, only through subtle notes and aromas. This is a brilliant style of winemaking that champions the Pinot Noir varietal.
