2017 marked the first vintage of this 1er cru, having been blended into the Chambolle-Musigny Vielles Vignes years prior. It undergoes the traditional destemming and pre-fermentation process and is aged half and half in new and one-year-old oak barrels.
Reviews 92 points Wine Advocate "Rich aromas of cherries, blackberries, dark chocolate and burning embers introduce the 2018 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Bourniques, a medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping wine with a tangy spine of acidy, fine but youthfully chalky tannins and a long, sapid finish. (WK)" 91-93 points Vinous "It has a deep inky color. The bouquet is rather marked by the wood, although it is much more assimilated on the palate, which shows impressive energy and balance. (NM)"

About Domaine Hudelot-Baillet
In 2004, Joel Hudelot-Baillet, who had taken charge of the domaine in 1981 following his father, retired and entrusted the responsibility to his son-in-law, Dominique Le Guen. Le Guen, who joined the domain in 1998 with a background as an air force technician, has skillfully honed his winemaking craft over the years.
Emphasizing the unique character of each appellation, Le Guen's winemaking process involves careful grape sorting and destemming without crushing. A cold pre-maceration period lasting about 8 days aids in maximizing flavor extraction. After that, he initiates the fermentation process with punching down, later transitioning to pumping over, and he utilizes a delestage method, which aids in drawing tannins from the grape skins and not the pips. Depending on the wine, 30-50% new oak barrels are used for aging, with an élevage period ranging from 12 to 18 months. This intricate process culminates in robust, deep-colored wines that exude rich fruitiness, finesse, and power, quintessential characteristics of Chambolle-Musigny wines.
Under the leadership of Le Guen, Domaine Hudelot-Baillet has continued to evolve and refine, producing wines emblematic of their terroir and a testament to the domaine's unwavering commitment to quality and elegance.
