Georges Noellat

Domaine Georges Noellat, in Vosne-Romanee, is one of the commune’s most well-established and renowned estates. But when Geroges Noellat passed away in the late 1990s, his wife took over and sold most of what she produced to Louis Jadot and Joseph Drouhin. But when the contract with those negociants ran out a few years ago Madame Noellat handed the estate’s management to her then 20-year-old nephew, Maxime Cheurlin. Cheurlin is related to the Jayer family and the Rouget family, both Burgundy dynasties, so winemaking runs in his blood. Cheurlin’s first vintage as head of the estate was the 2010 vintage. The estate has several Premier Cru parcels and also a parcel of Grands Echezeaux planted with 80-year-old vines. Wine Advocate has called Cheurlin “a huge talent, someone destined for stardom.”


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits, Nuits-St.-Georges, Aux Boudots

Aux Boudots is a 15.8-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the appellation of Nuits-Saints-Georges, in Burgundy’s Cote de Nuits. Located at the northern end of Nuits-Saints-Georges, the vineyard is just across the appellation division from Vosne-Romanee’s Premier Cru Les Malconsorts. Because there are no Grand Cru vineyards in Nuits-Saints-Georges, the appellation’s considerable reputation rests on its excellent Premier Crus. Aux Boudot is 250-290 meters above sea level, a near ideal elevation, and the soil is limestone, gravel and clay. Burgundy writer Clive Coates has noted that Aux Boudot “is altogether more Vosne in character than Nuits.”


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
