This Romanée-St-Vivant Grand Cru is vibrant and powerful.

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 of Romanée-Saint-Vivant is planted with the oldest vines of the Domaine dating back to 1920. The vineyard is located next to the very famous Domaine de la Romanée Conti.

This wine has a complex nose of black raspberry, cherry and subtle notes of menthol and cocoa. The palate is vibrant, powerful and well structured with pretty tannins. It can be paired with strong-flavored meats: furred or feathered game, braised in sauce or simply grilled. Also recommended as a companion to peking duck or a nice cut of roast veal. It will benefit from 10 to 15 years cellaring. 100% Pinot Noir.

"This Romanée-Saint-Vivant is the exact definition of the quintessence of Pinot Noir. It defines the power of the Pinot Noir without weight. A must have Romanée-Saint-Vivant in your cellar."

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 to 25% 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.
