Founded in 1981 by Joel Hudelot and his wife Chantal Baillet, Domaine Hudelot-Baillet is located solely within Chambolle-Musigny. In 1998, Dominque Le Guen, son-in-law and eventual heir joined the winery and has since been developing the quality and style of the wines to an enviable level. Christophe Roumier has declared Le Guen as a"vigneron to watch"within the appellation. Coming from a small, upper part of the Chambolle side of Bonnes Mares, where the vines average 87 years of age, these grapes also undergo a pre-fermentation maceration before being crushed. Aged in 50% new and 50% one-year-old oak barrels after punch-down, pump-over, and delestage (rack and return) occur to avoid over-extraction.
Reviews 94 points Wine Advocate "Aromas of mulberries, cherries, violets and spices introduce Hudelot-Baillet's 2018 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru, a full-bodied, ample and enveloping wine that's velvety and elegantly muscular, with notable mid-palate volume, ripe but lively acids and a long finish. (WK)" 94-96 points Vinous "...light peppermint aromas eventually come forth. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and vivid black cherry and cassis fruit. An Amoureuses-like finish lingers long in the mouth. This is a superb Bonnes-Mares. (NM)"
