Georges Noellat Vosne Romanee 2020 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
A lively full purple colour with scarlet rim. This sample has a slightly oxidative nose which is unlikely to be representative of the wine. Fine, poised, classy, with fine-grained tannins, plenty of them but they are fine enough, with a medium to long finish. Tasted: November 2021. - Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
Georges Noëllat was the nephew of Charles Noëllat, who was once the proprietor of one of Vosne’s greatest domaines—a domaine who made important contributions to Domaines Jean-Jacques Confuron and Hudelot Noëllat, and even formed the vast majority of Domaine Leroy. As of 1990, Domaine Georges Noëllat sold its production to Jadot and Drouhin for 20 years. Enter 20-year-old Maxime Cheurlin in 2010, who consequently took over the management of the estate from his grandmother. Cheurlin grew up in Champagne, but it seems Burgundy wine is truly in his blood as he is a nephew of the Jayer family and a cousin of Emmanuel Rouget’s sons. Thus, he complemented his winemaking studies at the Lycée du Viticole in Beaune with stages at Domaine Emmanuel Rouget and Domaine Gros Frère et Soeur in 2009.
