A very rare white crafted by one of Chambolle-Musigny's artisanal domaines, this Bourgogne white is from a higher classification than a typical Bourgogne Blanc. Dominique's Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc comes from 0.84 hectares spread across three parcels located in the Hautes-Côtes above Chambolle in an area called Vergy. The wine kicks off fermentation in tank but finishes in barrel where it continues to age for around 12 months. Around 15% of the total volume is aged in new barrels. 

Domaine Hudelot-Baillet is a true Chambolle-Musigny producer with cellars in the town as well as holdings entirely within the appellation. The domaine was created in 1981 by Joël Hudelot (inherited largely from his father Paul) and his wife Chantal Baillet. Joël retired in 2004 and passed along the reins to his son-in-law Dominique Le Guen, who had been working with him at the domaine since 1998.

The viticultural philosophy at Hudelot-Baillet is organic though the domaine is not technically certified. There are no insecticides used and sexual confusion is employed instead to combat problematic bugs. The harvest is performed manually with sorting work done in the vineyards and again at the cuverie if necessary. The fruit is 100% destemmed, and the new oak program averages 30% for the villages wines, 40% for the premiers and 50% for the Bonnes Mares. The wines are given 12 to 18 months of élevage before being bottled, generally without fining or filtration. Hudelot describes his intended style as one of finesse, succinctly explaining that "all of my appellations are in Chambolle and finesse is what we do best."

The 2019 Bourgogne Hautes-Côtes de Nuits Blanc, which had been racked and blended ready for bottling in November, has a crisp yellow plum and shaved almond bouquet. The palate is nicely balanced with almond and custard creams and a touch of spice toward the finish. Well made and should be delicious.
