2013 Domaine Hudelot-Noellat
活動日期：104/10/05 ~104/11/4 或售完為止
Domaine Hudelot-Noellat 創立於1960年，Alain Hudelot-Noellat 娶了Charles Noellat 的孫女為妻，並帶來數塊相當不錯Vosne Romanee的葡萄園，1977年後陸續又增加特級園:Clos Vougeot(0.69公頃)、Richebourg(0.28公頃)和Romanee Saint Vivant(0.48公頃)。現由第三代外孫Charles van Canneyts 負責接手管理酒莊，而年輕俊秀的Charles van Canneyts總是能不負所望，每個年份都呈現出精彩的表現，讓酒迷們完全不想錯過任何年份的佳釀!
1. Romanee Saint Vivant 92~95 Stephen Tanzer 限量
Note: from a .48 ha parcel of vines; 9 barrels were produced in 2013 BH: Don't miss!
Tasting note: The nose was completely reduced though in this case the underlying fruit did seem ripe. The sleek and ultra-refined
mouth feel adds substantially to the sense of elegance and class as the tannins are super fine if sufficiently dense to suggest that
this will also need at least 12 to 15 years of cellaring to be at its best. I very much like the balance and in particular the explosive
finish. In short this is textbook RSV.
2. Richebourg 93~96Stephen Tanzer 限量
Note: from a .28 ha parcel of vines that abut those of the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti in Richebourg proper; 5 barrels were
produced in 2013 BH:Don't miss!
Tasting note: There are no issues with reduction here as the overtly spicy nose features cool and ultra-pure notes of essence of
red currant, violets and a touch of plum, all of which is trimmed is subtle hints of sandalwood. The intense, muscular and
large-scaled flavors exude a fine bead of minerality and while there is ample power and punch this is a Richebourg of relative
refinement. Note that though this is quite firmly structured it is the epitome of what I like to describe as power without weight.
3. Clos de Vougeot 91~93 Stephen Tanzer 限量
Note: from two separate parcels, one to the left of the Château and another situated to the right by the Méo-Camuzet vines
Tasting note: This is also heavily reduced though not lactic. This combines excellent richness with very fine detail that adds to the
appeal of the medium weight plus flavors that deliver outstanding length on the moderately austere and beautifully
well-balanced finish. While not imposingly structured this will still need all of 12 to 15 years of bottle age to realize its full
4. Vosne Romanee 1er Cru Les Suchots ♥ 92~94 Neal Martin
Tasting note: Here the nose is slightly riper than that of the Beaux Monts but otherwise largely similar. There is a bit more
volume if less minerality to the generously proportioned medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of structure-buffering dry
extract, all wrapped in a highly persistent and better balanced finale. Textbook Suchots that should amply reward 7 to 10 years
of cellar time. BH: Outstanding
5. Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Meurgers ♥ 91~93 Neal Martin
Tasting note: Reduction is sufficiently strong so as to render the nose impossible to evaluate. There is excellent size, weight and
density to the medium-bodied flavors that possess a really lovely mouth feel thanks to the abundant dry extract as well as the
quality of the tannins which are finer than usual. Even so the Nuits roots are in evidence as the lingering finish does display a
touch of rusticity as well as an interesting hint of blood orange. This is well worth considering provided that you have at least a
modicum of patience. BH: Outstanding
6. Vougeot 1er Cru Les Petits Vougeots 89~91 Neal Martin
Tasting note: An airy and elegant nose features aromas of black cherry, pomegranate and pretty violet hints. There is a very sleek
and refined mouth feel to the lightly mineral-inflected medium weight flavors that possess good balance on the dusty if
ever-so-slightly rustic finish. My sense is that the rusticity will eventually dissipate as this wine is normally quite fine.
7. Chambolle Musigny 88~90 Neal Martin
Note: from 11 different parcels; 25% new oak
Tasting note: Here the nose of black pinot fruit and floral aromas is more elegant though only slightly more complex. There is
good punch and delineation to the more refined medium-bodied flavors that terminate in a dusty and sappy finish. The sense of
refinement is enhanced by the fine-grained tannins and this should be enjoyable young if desired.
8. Vosne Romanee 89~91 Neal Martin
Note: this has some young vines 1ers added to a blend of Basses Maizières and Les Vigneux
Tasting note: There is enough reduction to flatten the nose but the underlying fruit does appear to be ripe. In the same fashion
as the Chambolle villages this possesses a refined mouth feel along with plenty of punch on the medium-bodied flavors that
deliver notably better depth and length on the delicious and well-balanced finale. A quality Vosne villages.
AFN21NSGHN13 Nuits Saint Georges s Les Bas de Combes 90~92 Neal Martin $1,500 89-91 2021+
Tasting note: A touch of the sauvage adds breadth to the deeply pitched nose that is formed by distinctly earthy dark berry fruit
and humus scents. There is solid mid-palate concentration to the delicious, vibrant and palate coating middle weight flavors that
also possess very fine depth and length for a villages level wine.
