Domaine Hudelot-Noellat wines, praised as being amongst the best in Burgundy for a long time are full of charm and exuberance with great depths, purity and finesse. Charles van Canneyt, Alain Hudelot-Noellat's grandson, now runs the domaine as his grandfather stepped down in 2007. Charles's philosophy is to keep up to 20% of the stems with the juice, especially in vintages and appellations where the fruit can support the extra tannins. The wines are aged in casks particularly from Allier, with some from the Vosges and local Citeaux. Hudelot - Noellat Clos de Vogeot is one of the best from this variable Grand Cru. The quality of this wine improved significantly after Alain sold its lower parcel, which was located at the lower slope of the vineyard near the RN 74, thus reducing its total production by 40% but remaining only with the two parcels near the Chateau, neighboring Domaine Leroy's parcel.
