This Vosne-Romanée has some good punch and a long finish.

Domaine Hudelot-Noellat is an iconic producer in the Côte de Nuits. The style of the Domaine is defined by elegance and purity. This Vosne-Romanée is from old vines that are 35 years old.

This wine shows great complexity, some good punch in the mid-palate and impressive balance. The flavours of red berries, a touch of leather and beautiful silky tannins are doing the perfect job. It can be paired with charcuterie, cheese and strong meat such as game cooked on the barbecue. It will benefit from three to five years ageing or by being decanted for 45 minutes before serving. 100% Pinot Noir.

"This wine is textbook Vosne-Romanée. It is pretty, powerful and balanced. I am very impressed with the level of complexity."

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.
