Domaine Hudelot-Noellat produce some of the finest expressions of Pinot Noir in the Cotes de Nuits. This iconic producer has 10 hectares of vineyards located in prime spots within the some of the best appellations of Burgundy, including the Grand Crus of Clos de Vougeot, Romanée-Saint-Vivant and Richebourg. Charles Van Canneyt, grandson of Alain Hudelot, has run the domaine since 2008, and the wines under his care are refined and expressive. Charles is growing the vineyard organically most vintages, however, if the weather is challenging and the crop at high risk of disease, he is willing to treat them accordingly.

Other Reviews....
The liqueur-like aromas of plum, spice and dark raspberry are also quite ripe without being unduly jammy. There is slightly better energy to the relatively fine and nicely detailed medium-bodied flavors that exude a refreshing salinity on the clean, focused and mildly austere finale.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Wafting from the glass with notes of cherries, raspberries, rose petals and orange rind, the 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Village is medium to full-bodied, supple and fleshy, with refined tannins, lively acids and a perfumed finish.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2020)

The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Village is a blend of 11 parcels and aged in 20% new oak. It offers pretty blueberry and raspberry aromas on the nose, which is quite understated in the context of the vintage. The palate is sweet and candied on the entry with supple tannins and good acidity, though perhaps the finish is just missing a little flair and complexity. Drink over the next decade.
