Our producer: Noëllat Georges
Maxime Cheurlin belongs to the sixth generation of the winegrower family Noëllat. Great-grandfather Georges Noëllat gave his name to the domain. After his death in 1982, his wife Augustine Noëllat, known as Marcelle, took over the management of the winery until 1986. Her daughter Marie Thérèse Noëllat married Jacques Cheurlin, a winemaker in Celle sur Ource in Champagne. He took over the management of the Vosne-Romanée estate from 1986 to 1990. After her divorce in 1991 Marie Thérèse Noëllat returned to Burgundy back and joined until 2009 the succession of her husband. They have two children, Francis and Patrice Cheurlin. Francis Cheurlin, his father, built a new winery in Champagne. Maxime himself was more interested in the production of wines and especially in Burgundy wines and so he took over the Vosne-Romanée winery from 2010. The vineyards belong to the family since the end of the 19th century. For the Vinification of all wines, except for the Grand Cru "Les Échezeaux", which claims to produce almost 30% of the complete harvest, the berries are completely de-stemmed. Then the wine comes in barrels. The proportion of new barrels is depending on the Appellation 30% to 100%, which depending on the type of wine different Toastings (roasting the barrels over the fire) are subjected. The wines mature in barrels for 15 months and then in wine tanks for 3 months before being bottled. So they can rest and do not have to be filtered before bottling.
