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. Offering a more mineral expression of the terroir, this wine comes from vines averaging 25 years in age. Once destemmed at the winery, the grapes go through the pre-fermentation maceration and then are punched down and pumped over to avoid over-extraction. Aging occurs over 18 months in 30% new and 70% one-year-old oak barrels.

The more refined, intense and more mineral-driven flavors possess a highly attractive mid-palate mouthfeel though the firmer and more austere finish.... (AM)"
