Maxime Cheurlin Noellat Chambolle Musigny les Feusselottes 1er Cru 2020 (750ML)
Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions
A sizeable cuvée for Maxime. Excellent dark purple colour and deep fruit. There is a sweetness of dark fruit on the palate with just the lightest of torrefied notes behind. The tannins are fine, the acidity less evident, perhaps this could just do with a touch more energy in the middle. Pick a day earlier? 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.
