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....
This is the first wine to exhibit any appreciable reduction and it's enough to mask the fruit. More interesting are the velvety, generous and extremely rich flavors that coat the palate with sappy dry extract on the bitter cherry pit-inflected finale. As is usually the case, this is not as refined but it's definitely more powerful.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2018 Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Les Suchots is showing brilliantly this year, wafting from the glass with a deep-pitched bouquet of cassis, blackberries, spices and dark chocolate. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and enveloping, its textural attack segueing into a deep and layered core, concluding with a long and penetrating finish.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2020)

The 2018 Vosne-Romanée Les Suchots 1er Cru has a typically opulent, generous bouquet, as one would expect from this vineyard, armed with precocious black cherries, cassis and violet aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity, a little more density than the Beaux Monts and a long, tender orange peel and white pepper finish. This is an excellent 2018 from Hudelot-Noellat.
