Wine Critic Reviews:

...the 2013 Hudelot Richebourg was absolutely singing at the time of my visit. This is going to be a great, great vintage for this wine, as it soars from the glass in an extremely pure mix of red plums, cherries, raspberries, cocoa, gamebirds, a marvelously complex base of soil, woodsmoke and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and utterly refined, with a rock solid core, great focus and grip, fine-grained tannins and a very, very long, elegant and tangy finish. A beautiful Richebourg in the making.

(60% new oak): Deep red, darker than the RSV. Less showy on the nose today, offering aromas of black raspberry, licorice, coffee and brown spices. Big, rich and highly concentrated; in a more masculine style than the Romanée-Saint-Vivant, showing a youthful medicinal cast to the sappy red cherry and menthol flavors. Seriously structured grand cru, finishing with a rather muscular tannic spine but also terrific lift and soil-driven salinity. Charles van Canneyt told me that this wine was much more open than the Romanée-Saint-Vivant a week before my visit, but then these two grand crus routinely "flip-flop" in his cellar during the months following their malos.

The 2013 Richebourg Grand Cru has a more broody bouquet compared to the Romanée Saint Vivant, the fruit darker, though perhaps eventually that subtle floral note with become more pronounced. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a fine bead of acidity plus a firm backbone and focus, although at the moment it does not have the sheer untrammeled chutzpah of the R,S,V. Still impressive though, and Charles mentioned that it was changing each day.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.
Producer H.Noellat: Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat truly hit its stride somewhere around 1965, and their success has been meteoric ever since. They've shown versatility in the types of wine they produce, deep respect and love of their terroir, and an undying passion for the craft - and the results are stunning. Drinking their wines is almost a surreal experience, and it can be hard to quantify with words just how precise and elegant their wines are. These are bottles that are best consumed very slowly, so you have time to take in all the nuances and subtleties. With an expressive and delicate nose, a detailed and compelling structure and intense, pristine flavors on display, your heart may need some time to recover from the excitement. The beautiful pomegranate creates a creamy sensation that thoroughly coats and massages the inside of your mouth.

Region Burgundy: Situated just west of the beautiful river Saone, the hills and valleys of Burgundy stand as they have stood since medieval times, and you can almost hear the cheerful chatter of vineyard workers from miles away. Indeed, France's identity in the world of wine would be incomplete without the inclusion of Burgundy and its many viticultural achievements. Every little sub-region of the area boasts a unique soil composition, which, when combined with the area's climate conditions, creates an incredibly diverse and appealing selection of fine wines. Every new bottle is an adventure of its own, and a snapshot of its birthplace. You could spend years sampling great Burgundian wines, and you would still have a lot to learn, which is what makes the region so compelling for veterans and novice wine lovers alike. No matter what your taste in wines may be, there is a winery in Burgundy that could mesmerize your mind and make your senses scream with joy. And what better way to spend a comfy summer afternoon with your friends and family than with a classy bottle from some of the region's most reputable wineries? From the noble slopes of Cote d'Or to the flatlands near various settlements, let us help you on your journey as we explore Burgundy's most delicious and renowned wines.
Type of Wine Burgundy Red: If you have a craving for some beautiful, mind-expanding Pinot Noir, few regions can match the talent and consistency of Burgundy. The grape almost seems like it evolved for this very region, and its essence will stimulate your senses and arouse your imagination. Drink deep and experience almost spiritual enlightenment.
Varietal Pinot Noir: Pinot Noir is possibly the most versatile red grape when it comes to the ways it's been used over the years. From red wines to sparkling wines and beyond, there aren't many places where you can avoid hearing about it, and for a good reason. It's often easy to spot a bottle of Pinot Noir simply by the pale, translucent color, which transitions into a shade reminiscent of old-timey brickwork, adding a lovely dash of country charm to an already awe-inspiring drink.
