Reviews 90 points Wine Advocate "Aromas of cherries, cassis, loamy soil and spices introduce the 2018 Nuits-Saint-Georges Village, a medium to full-bodied, lively and youthfully structured wine with a vibrant core of fruit and fine, chalky tannins. This is another quite serious communal wine from Cheurlin that will benefit from a bit of bottle age. (WK)" 89-91 points Burghound "A slightly more deeply pitched nose reflects notes of poached plum, game, newly turned earth and a whiff of spice. There is fine density to the vibrant and intense medium-bodied flavors that possess fine depth on the sneaky long finish. This too is a quality effort for a villages level Nuits. (AM)"

About Georges Noellat
With a focus on minimal intervention, Maxime manages the estate's profound terroirs of Vosne Romanée and northern Nuits St Georges, which include a large proportion of incredibly old vines planted before WWII. Maxime has already gained a reputation for his elegant, lacy style of Pinot Noir, which emphasizes the purity of fruit and refinement. All grapes are hand-harvested and cool-macerated before fermentation, with only native yeasts used. During vinification, Maxime prefers the term infusion to extraction, so punch downs are rare and gentle. The use of new oak depends on the appellation and vintage but ranges from 30% to 100%. Aging takes 14 to 20 months, and the wines are generally bottled without fining or filtration.
Despite being a small estate with only five and a half hectares of land, a large proportion of it is old vines, which he intends to preserve with special attention and care. Neal Martin from Vinous Media has said, "Maxime seems to be a driven young vigneron whose tenets have been instilled from an early age, but wow – what potential!"
