This Vougeot 1er Cru is powerful and balanced.

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 this 1er Cru “Les Petits Vougeot” is ideally located just below the Musigny Grand Cru. Furthermore, the Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru is to its left and the Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru “Amoureuses” is on its right. These are indeed great neighbours to have!

The nose is lively with fine black fruits. The palate is showing great balance, freshness and a long finish. You can pair it with roast chicken, charcuterie, cheese and red meat. It will benefit from five to eight years of cellaring. If you want to drink it in its youth, you can decant it an hour before serving. 100% Pinot Noir.

"This Vougeot 1er cru “Les Petits Vougeot” is not as notorious as the Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru or Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru of the Domaine but has all the attributes to be as good as these bigger names. In fact, it probably represents the most incredible value of the range."

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.
