The domaine dates back to the 1950s. In the the 1980s Patrick Hudelot took over the family estate and took it to the next level. Today it has 22 hectares of vines in one of the most important regions of the Hautes Cotes de Nuits. In 2000 Patrick converted his practices to organic viticulture in order to protect consumers, vineyard and winery workers and the ecosystem from harmful chemicals. As of 2008 Patrick Hudelot has partenered with other Burgundian domaines from various appellations, acting as a negociants, and vinifying grapes in his own domaine, thus being able to expand his portfolio, now offering wines from various appellations, including Premiers Crus and Grands Crus.
