Domaine Michel Noëllat
Among the oldest winegrowing families of Vosne Romanée, the Domaine Michel Noëllat et fils feeds on a unique know-how associated with innovative ideas.
The Domaine Michel Noëllat in Vosne Romanée produces village appellations, Premier Cru and Grands Crus de Bourgogne from the Côte de Nuits.
The harvests and winemaking are very demanding: for the red wines, the grapes are harvested by hand, sorted, then conveyed to the vat room in small tanks to avoid crushing berries and early oxidation.
They are de-stemmed completely then put in open stainless steel tanks, the temperatures being controlled by thermo-regulation.
The red macerates at low temperature for 3 days then the fermentation takes place in the tanks for about 2 weeks.
Regular pumping over is done and the hat is pegged 4 to 5 times during the vinification period.
The wines are aged in French oak barrels from various sources.
The proportion of new oak is between 30% for the villages and 50% for the 1st Crus and Grands Crus.
The bottling is carried out after 15 to 18 months of aging in barrels.
