Maxime Cheurlin was just 20 years old when he took over this domaine in 2010. Seven years on, the promise he showed at that tender age has been more than fulfilled. Maxime can claim a rather impressive heritage. The domaine’s namesake, Georges Noëllat, was the nephew of Charles Noëllat, who once held one of the greatest domaines in Vosne-Romanée. Sadly, this property was broken up, with parts going into today’s JJ Confuron, Hudelot Noëllat and, notably the heart of Domaine Leroy in a famed 1988 sale. The Georges Noëllat section was sold to Jadot and Drouhin for 20 years starting in 1990. When that contract ended, Maxime took over from his grandmother in 2010. Luckily he had the pedigree, as he’s a relative of both the Jayer and Rouget families, which are about as noble in Vosne as anything not named de Villaine.
