The Noëllat tribe are abundant in this part of the Côte de Nuits. Two brothers, Charles and Ernest, flourished in the early part of the 20th century. Charles had a son, André, who died in 1941, and whose daughter Odile married Alain Hudelot, to form Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat in Vougeot. Domaine Charles Noëllat no longer exists since its purchase by Lalou Bize-Leroy in 1988. Ernest had two sons, Georges and Henri. Domaine Georges Noëllat has passed down through daughter Marie-Thèrese to her sons Patrice and François Cheurlin. Henri meanwhile married Marie-Thèrese Jayer, daughter of Henri Jayer’s Uncle Edouard. They had a son, Michel – who married a distant cousin, Hélène Noëllat – and their children today run Domaine Michel Noëllat.
