Burghound: "...I have never seen better wines across the board from the domaine. If you're not familiar with the wines, you owe it to yourself to make their acquaintance."
Highly recommended by Burghound
 
Domaine Gilbert and Christine Felettig are one of the super stars in our portfolio.
 
This small domaine is receiving fantastic reviews and their reputation rises with each vintage. If you have consumed some of the past vintages from your cellar you will know what I mean. The wines, at all levels, are simply superb. Burghound says in the 2016 Cote de Nuits issue "As readers know, I have enthusiastically reported on the rapid rise of Domaine Felettig to increasing prominence as the quality has done nothing but improve. 2016 represents a cherry on top of the cake as I have never seen better wines across the board from the domaine. If you're not familiar with the wines, you owe it to yourself to make their acquaintance."
 
Gilbert Felettig reports that the 2016 growing season "was as difficult as I've ever seen and that includes 2012 and 2013. Many of my vineyards are in Chambolle and the late April frost took a heavy toll. For example, in Chambolle my yields were less than 10 hl/ha but almost normal in Vosne but even so, my overall production was off 60%. The losses in Chambolle were so bad that there will not be a Feusselottes or Combottes bottled separately" (these have been combined into a 1er Cru Cuvee which we have available).
  
We usually get a solid allocation from the Domaine but in 2016 with quantities reduced so much we do not have a lot of wine to sell. I have assembled some 6 Packs comprising 1 bottle each of six different wines including the hard to get 1er Cru Chambolles. As Burghound says "If you're not familiar with the wines, you owe it to yourself to make their acquaintance."

Burghound notes (where published):
 
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru: this cuvée is composed by 7 different lieux-dits that include both Les and Aux Combottes, Feusselottes, Gruenchers, Les Plantes, Chabiots, Chatelots; from an incredibly low 6 hl/ha and 50% whole cluster. An ultra-fresh mélange features notes of cassis, blue pinot fruit, violet and a whisper of sandalwood. The rich, concentrated and impressively powerful big-bodied flavors possess ample of minerality and an almost painful intensity while delivering superb persistence on the balanced finale. This is an imposing effort of power and grace. If you can find it, buy it provided that you intend to cellar it as it's not likely to drink especially well young. 92-94 Points
 
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuees: Felettig noted that this had just completed its malo and not surprisingly the nose was reduced. On the plus side there is both good freshness and energy to the impressively rich and broad-shouldered flavors that possess a taut muscularity while flashing outstanding length on the firm but not austere finale. This is quite serious yet the velvety texture is seductive. Lovely stuff. A Sweet Spot Wine. 90-93 Points
 
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Lavrottes: Reduction currently dominates the nose but there is excellent intensity, freshness and concentration to the muscular medium weight plus flavors that offer very fine depth and persistence on the more obviously structured and borderline rustic finish. As is usually the case this is less refined than the Fuées but what isn't always the case is that it's actually more complex. Patience. 90-93 Points
 
Vosne-Romanee: Here the expressive nose is very Vosne in basic character with its overtly spiced array of dark currant and Asian-style tea scents. The supple and utterly delicious flavors are highly seductive with a rich and opulent mouthfeel, all wrapped in a balanced and lingering finish. While this should be capable of rewarding 6 to 8 years of cellar time it should also drink well in its youth. 89-91 Points
 
Morey-St-Denis 1er Cru En la Rue de Vergy: The first time we have had this cuvee from the domaine. No tasting note from Burghound.
  
Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice: No tasting note. This wine is always a stunner!

Cheers, 
Darren
