2018 Hudelot-Noellat Vosne Romanee
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.
This is actually aromatically similar to the Chambolle villages but with markedly more spice elements in play. There is a lovely sense of vibrancy to the well-detailed medium weight flavors that don't possess quite the same density but there is slightly better balance and overall depth.

The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Village has also turned out well, exhibiting scents of wild berries, peonies, violets and grilled squab, followed by a medium to full-bodied, supple and nicely concentrated palate that's lively and refined. This is a lovely wine.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2020)
The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Village has a fragrant bouquet of morello cherry and raspberry aromas. The palate is sweet on the entry, featuring notes of sour cherry and orange peel. A little compact toward the finish, but it should mellow out after bottling. Fine.
