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....
Here the nose is compositionally similar to the Charmes save for the fact that it's much spicier. The super-sleek, intense and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors brim with minerality on the classy and sneaky long finale. This is like rolling small pebbles around in the mouth and the associated salinity adds a sense of lift to the finish. Good stuff.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

Another great success this year is the 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Beaumonts, a brilliant cuvée in the making that bursts with aromas of cassis, cherries, smoked duck, dried flowers and rich soil tones. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and textural, with a multidimensional core of lavishly ripe but succulent fruit that entirely conceals the wine's structuring tannins. Readers who are unable to secure a few bottles of Hudelot-Noellat's Richebourg this year should consider consoling themselves with this Beaumonts, as the latter tastes in many respects like the former's junior sibling.

The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Les Beaumonts 1er Cru has a fragrant, floral bouquet with pressed iris flower and potpourri infusing dark cherry and black currant fruit. There is fine lift and perfume here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, moderate density, good acidity and a slightly savory, dried-blood-tinged finish that I find attractive. Drink over the next 12­–18 years.
