Exploring Domaine Michel Noëllat’s 2017s

Back to Burgundy this week! 

Domaine Michel Noëllat is a six-generation house based in Vosne-Romanée. With fairly sizeable holdings, they have vines in 23 appellations, from Marsannay to Pommard. They focus mainly on Pinot Noir and are practitioners of Lutte Raisonnée principles. They use very little new oak; even their Grand Crus only see 50-60%.

Thus we have a house intent on terroir-driven wine. Whenever I open a bottle, I find intense concentration of fruit with a juicy brightness, all layered over the wonderful foundation of whichever appellation the wine hails from.

For this week, I thought we’d start at Village-level, with Jeroboams of Nuits-Saint-Georges. For the weekend, we’ll open a 9-liter Salmanazar of a 1er cru from Vosne-Romanée – “Les Beaux-Monts.” I’m excited to check in on both of these wines (particularly the Salmanazar!) and I hope you’ll come join us this week.
