2013 Domaine Felettig Burgundies - "Truly Exceptional" - John Gilman‏

Felettig Superstar Header
John Gilman, A View from the Cellar: "Gilbert Felettig has fashioned truly exceptional 2013s and he is clearly reaching a new level in his career. The 2013s .... were showing great when I stopped by the estate on the eighth of April of this year....the entire cellar was absolutely singing and was the finest range of wines I have yet tasted from this up and coming estate." "I have had the sense that the future looked very promising at Domaine Felettig ever since I tasted my first bottle of their wine here in New York a few years ago, and with the 2013 vintage, the future has most definitely arrived at this lovely estate and Gilbert Felettig is now clearly one of the superstars in the village of Chambolle-Musigny. This was one of the most exciting visits of my entire trip to France in April of this year, 
and I visited 
some rather impressive addresses in both Burgundy and Champagne!"
 

Burghound: "quality at this domaine has skyrocketed over the past few vintages...."

 

We have been telling our clients what fantastic wines Domaine Felettig have been producing. Now John Gilman has come out with enormous praise for this exciting domaine.

 

If you have not joined the bandwagon and purchased some of these exceptional wines this could very well be your last chance. The Echezeaux and 1er Crus have sold out but we do have a small amount of Villages and Hautes Cotes left. Not only are the wines reviewed exceptionally well but they are also reasonably priced. And buyers of the current vintage will have first opportunity to purchase the 2014 vintage when it comes available.

 

John Gilman also goes on to say...

"The domaine has a great range of premier crus, particularly in Chambolle-Musigny, but what really stood out this year was just how deep and serious the village wines are here in 2013, most of which are clearly of premier cru quality and will age long and gracefully. They should most emphatically not be ignored by Chambolle lovers looking for any of the premier crus!"

 

So if you are looking for 1er Cru quality wines at attractive Villages prices, made by a "superstar", don't miss these wines!

Felettig Chambolle John Gilman: The 2013 Chambolle villages bottling chez Felettig was absolutely singing at the time of my visit, jumping from the glass in a classic mélange of cherries, red plums, chalky soil tones, gamebirds, violets and a stylish framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is fullish, very pure on the attack and sappy at the core, with lovely focus and grip, moderate tannins and outstanding balance on the long, tangy and complex finish. All this lovely Chambolle AC needs is four or five years in the cellar to fully blossom. 2019-2040+. 89+ Points

Felettig Gevrey
John Gilman: 
As Monsieur Felettig observed, this parcel was purchased in 1995, when the vines were twenty years of age and not in particularly good shape, but after twenty years of his vineyard, he is now very happy with the quality of the wines emerging from these vines. The 2013 is stellar, offering up a classic blend of red and black cherries, grilled meats, coffee, a fine base of soil tones, smoke, a touch of mustard seed and a lovely framing of cedary wood. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with lovely structure, a fine core, ripe tannins and a long, tangy and beautifully balanced finish. Another very high class villages bottling. 2021-2050. 90+ Points

Felettig Hautes Cotes NV Label John Gilman: The Haut Côte de Nuits bottling at Domaine Felettig hails from a parcel of forty to fifty year-old vines up above Comblanchien, and the wine was raised in ten percent new wood this year. The wine was showing very nicely at the time of my visit, with a stylish, red fruity nose of strawberries, cherries, chalky soil tones, a bit of mustard seed and a topnote of woodsmoke. On the palate the wine is medium-full, long and pure, with a good core, tangy acids and lovely length and grip on the gently tannic finish. This is really a fine example. 2016-2030+. 88 Points
