STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
Domaine Michel Nöellat, a 19th century Domaine located in Vosne-Romanée comprises 100 different plots in 27 hectares, across 25 appellations from the Côte de Nuits to the Côte de Beaune. The estate now with the sixth generation at the helm has an ultra-modern winery equipped with around forty thermo-regulated stainless-steel vats. Read more.
“They practice lutte raisonée, avoiding herbicides and pesticides, in the 27 hectares of vineyard in the Côte de Nuits, augmented by parcels down in Savigny-lès-Beaune. The average age of the vines is between 60 and 70 years old. Everything here is de-stemmed. Sebastien Nöellat told me that they do not wish to leave the imprint of the oak on their wines, so they are mostly matured in one-third each of new, one-year-old and two-year-old oak from three cooperages, currently Cavin, François Frères and Taransaud—although Sebastien said that they would reduce it to two from next year.” Parker
For those who like the best of the best this address is as good as it gets in Burgundy. The fruit for this wine comes from a 1.5ha vineyard (less than 5 acres) where the average vine age is 40 years. This wine was aged in 30% new French oak for 12 months. The result is a truly rich, energised sumptuous red with great staying power. Our take, sublime.
