Maxime Cheurlin Noellat Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits Village 2020 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
Dark purple, very ripe dark raspberry and plummy nose, some damsons, this has reached 13% so Maxime only just got there on time, if not a day late. There is power and energy and in fact the wine is really very attractive: Hautes Côtes de Nuits trying to be mainline and making it. Very pretty long finish. - 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.
