Iconic winemaker Charles van Canneyt took over Domaine Hudelot-Noellat from his grandfather in 2008, working alongside oenologist Vincent Meunier. This domaine has virutally every appellation a lover of Burgundy could possibly dream of. He is privileged to have holdings in some of the most celebrated terroirs in Nuits-St-Georges, Vosne-Romanée and Chambolle-Musigny including the grands crus of Romanée St-Vivant, Richebourg and Clos de Vougeot. Following the family philosophy of “letting the terroir speak”, he has not, unlike many young winemakers, made any drastic changes to the style of their wines. They remain refined, silky and elegant.
There have been some subtle changes however. The winery was updated to be less impactful on the environment, and he has followed the same theme in the vineyards, which have been farmed organically since 2019. Charles made the decision to reduce yields and implemented de-stemming – keeping up to 20% of the stems with the juice from his appellations that have fruit that can support the bolder tannins. Above all he is judicious when it comes to oak. They have old vines, 50+ years old, which imparts a supreme level of body and complexity.
His wines have received acclaim by wine critics and Burgundy lovers alike, with Robert Parker stating that “these are clearly wines worth the effort to search out”. There is little doubt that this domaine has really joined the big boys over the last couple of years, becoming among the ‘must-buy’ Burgundies. Charles Van Canneyt and Vincent Meunier are on a roll.
