Sixth generation winemakers at Domaine Michel Noëllat, cousins Sebastien Noëllat and Sophie Noëllat-Sirugue are beginning to carve out a significant international reputation, and deservedly so. With vines averaging 60-70 years, a reduced reliance on oak, and the adoption of a pragmatic investment strategy, quality has been on the rise since they began working together. The Clos Vougeot is their top wine, while the Echezeaux is a proper gem. Their entire range is wonderful, the wines deep, round and super-generous, the tannins soft like graphite, the terroir shining through. Very hot in Asia, the domaine’s wines are electronically chipped, ensuring authenticity and traceability. Bill Nanson’s a big fan and, as is Neal Martin, who recently discovered them. Of all the Noëllat domaines, this is the one to follow. Mark our words: prices are going to rocket.
