Georges Noellat was the nephew of Charles Noellat, who was once the proprietor of one of Vosne’s greatest domaines, a domaine who made important contributions to Domaines Jean-Jacques Confuron and Hudelot Noellat and even formed the vast majority of Domaine Leroy. As of 1990, Domaine Georges Noellat sold its production to Jadot and Drouhin for 20 years. Enter 20-year-old Maxime Cheurlin in 2010, who consequently took over the management of the estate from his grandmother.
Cheurlin grew up in Champagne, but it seems Burgundy wine is truly in his blood, as he is a nephew of the Jayer family and a cousin of Emmanuel Rouget’s sons. He complemented his winemaking studies at the Lycee du Viticole in Beaune with stages at Domaine Emmanuel Rouget and Domaine Gros Frere et Soeur in 2009.
