Domaine Felettig began in 1965 when Henri Felettig’s parents gave him 2 hectares of vines and 1 hectare of cassis (currants). In 1992 Henri and his wife Reine purchased additional vineyards bringing the total of their land to 9.72 hectares. More vineyards were purchased in 1995 including Vosne-Romanée Village, a Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru, and a Gevrey-Chambertin “La Justice”. The year 2001 saw the addition of a vineyard in Nuits St. Georges which meant their vineyards now spread from Gevrey-Chambertin to Vosne-Romanée, plus Hautes Côtes des Nuits and Beaune; a total of 10 hectares in the most prestigious appellations. The latest acquisition is the Grand Cru Echezeaux. This is certainly a domaine on the rise!


Today the domaine is run by Henri’s son and daughter, Gilbert and Christine.


They use various methods to ensure the quality of their wines; severe pruning, leaving only 7-8 branches per vine; green harvesting, cutting the green grapes from the vines to bring fewer clusters in order to have a greater concentration of quality juice in the remaining grapes; selective hand-harvesting, followed by traditional vinification, and ageing on the lees in oak barrels for a period of 12-18 months. They use 40% new oak barrels for the 1er Cru and 20-30% new oak for the appellation Villages. Since 1999 they have used no filtration at all on the Premier Crus in order to preserve the authenticity of their product.
