Maxime Cheurlin (Georges) Noëllat 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin En Champs, Burgundy, France

  • Winemaker: Maxime Cheurlin
  • Variety: Pinot Noir
  • Terroir: Size: 0.33 ha (0.82ac) of 65 year old vines planted below Les Champeaux, middle of east-facing slope at entrance to the Combe de Lavaux with cooler, limestone soil
  • Viticulture: Lutte raisonnée (sustainable with organic practice), treatments carried out only in reaction to a real, imminent threat
  • Vinification: 100% de-stemmed, 18-21 days indigenous yeast fermentation and maceration in stainless steel tanks with mostly pump-overs (some punch-downs at end of fermentation). Aged for 18 months in barrel (40% new oak).
  • Notes: This wine was first made in the 2015 vintage. However, due to low yields in the 2016 vintage, this parcel was blended with 0.25 hectares of two other vineyards (including Des Chéseaux) to make a Gevrey Village.

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.
