Felettig 2017 Gorgeous Header
Burghound: "quality at this domaine has skyrocketed over the past few vintages...."
 
I am often asked which of our domaines do I like the most or particularly recommend. They are like your children but one I always include is Domaine Gilbert and Christine Felettig. They were an early discovery for us and since that time their reputation has rocketed. They are now very firmly one of the new superstars of Burgundy.
 
They have a wonderful array of vineyards but the problem is the wines are too popular and our allocation is far less than what we would like.
 
Today we present a small range of the lovely 2017's which arrived just before Christmas. All of the wines are available at was were our Pre Arrival Prices.

Burghound has said "If you're not familiar with the wines, you owe it to yourself to make their acquaintance."

Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2017
Normally $60.95
Special $51.95
7 bottles available
Felettig Bourgogne Pinot Noir label Jasper Morris MW: This cuvée comprises 20 barrels from vineyards below Chambolle, including Les Bons Bâtons. Old vines, around 50-52 hl/ha giving 13% potential alcohol. 20% new wood. Blackish purple, quite tense, still quite wild after the malolactic fermentation which had only just finished, but the stuffing is there. Just wait to see if it softens later. Tasted: November 2018. 
86 Points
Neal Martin, Vinous Media: The 2017 Bourgogne Rouge is matured in 20% new oak, the malo having just finished on this cuvée when I visited the domaine. It has a pure, generous bouquet of black cherries and cassis fruit. The palate is medium-bodied, quite dense and intense for a Bourgogne Rouge, with plenty of blue fruit toward the finish. Quite a boisterous wine! (Drink between 2019-2022). 84-86 Points
Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2017
Normally $132.50
Special $112.50
25 bottles available
Felettig Chambolle VV
Jasper Morris MW: This cuvée is made of many small plots of old vines, average 45 years, matured 
using 30% new wood. This also underwent a very late malolactic fermentation which has made it difficult to taste. Powerful chunky stuff, dark fruit, cooked violets, redder fruit behind, good acidity. Tough at the back for now, but that could well just be the late malolactic interfering. Tasted: November 2018. 88-91 Points
Neal Martin, Vinous Media: The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes comes from vines between 40 and 60 years of age, spread over three hectares. It has a pure, harmonious bouquet of lifted dark cherries and iodine aromas that are very well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, crisp acidity and good substance, and the 30% new oak is deftly interwoven on the long, graphite-tinged finish. Do not overlook this. One of the best from the domaine. (Drink between 2022-2038). 91-93 Points

Nuits-St-Georges 2017
Normally $128.50
Special $108.95
36 bottles available
Felettig NSG
Jasper Morris MW: Two thirds Chaliots and one third Lavières, so the cuvée comes from both sides of the town. Attractive purple with a lighter rim, then a punchy nose with plums and raspberries, this has density but it is quite backward.
There is a firm mineral grip as well, perhaps reinforced by the late malolactic fermentation. Tasted: November 2018. 89-91 Points

Neal Martin, Vinous Media: The 2017 Nuits Saint-Georges Village comes two-thirds from Les Chaliots and one-third from Les Lavièves. It has a focused, detailed bouquet of wild strawberry and light cassis fruit, delineated and with commendable intensity. The palate is medium-bodied and silky-smooth in texture, the 50% new oak beautifully integrated, and the finish is sensual. This might be even better than the Vosne-Romanée Village. (Drink between 2021-2033). 90-92 Points

Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice 2017
Normally $132.50
Special $112.50
34 bottles available

Felettig Gevrey
Jasper Morris MW: Gilbert notes that La Justice always needs to be picked early as you have to watch the
ripening. The yield in 2017 of 40 hl/ha is a lot for this vineyard, which they have made since 1995, but he feels that such generosity has done the wine good. Fullish red purple, with a richer softer strawberry nose with a few darker more animal notes alongside. A touch firm up front, but there is a really engaging vibrant yet ripe red fruit behind.
Excellent length, very promising. Tasted: November 2018. 90-92 Points

Neal Martin, Vinous Media: The 2017 Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice, the first parcel to be picked by Felettig, has good fruit intensity on a nose of ample black cherries and blueberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with quite chewy tannin. A bold La Justice with a sweet, figgy finish that occludes the terroir somewhat. Hopefully it will develop more restraint and terroir expression by the time of bottling. (Drink between 2022-2030). 86-88 Points
Vosne-Romanee 2017
Normally $145.50
Special $123.50
30 bottles available

Felettig Vosne Label
Jasper Morris MW: Mostly from Jachees (80%) and Chalandins (20%). Rich purple, a dense concentrated backward
nose, in the mouth this gets really interesting thanks to noble tannins and a really impressive intensity through the middle, and very good length for the vintage Tasted: November 2018. 91-93 Points
Neal Martin, Vinous Media:
The 2017 Vosne-Romanée Village, matured in 60% new oak, has a very pure bouquet of dark cherries and boysenberry fruit, beautifully defined and seamlessly integrated with the oak. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit and quite dense for a Village Cru. The engaging, minerally finish offers a surfeit of freshness and tension. This comes highly recommended, although it will require three or four years to assimilate the new oak. (Drink between 2022-2030). 88-90 Points
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru 2017
Normally $222.95
Special $189.50
14 bottles available

Felettig Chambolle Premier Cru label Jasper Morris MW: This cuvée consist of 4 barrels, half his own fruit and half purchase. It comes from the
1ers crus Aux Combottes, Les Combottes (did you know they both existed?), Les Plantes and Gruenchers. Not one of
the deeper colours, the nose has some fruit but is a little bit disturbed. There is some youthful bitterness up front but also ample rich fruit behind. Needs time to marry with the 100% new wood. Tasted: November 2018. 90-93 Points

Neal Martin, Vinous Media: The maiden 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru comes partly from four parcels from Felettig's father, augmented by fruit from local friends (so half domaine and about half négoce) that underwent a slightly faster malo than other cuvées, matured entirely in new wood. It has to shake off a bit of reduction but eventually offers attractive brambly red fruit mixed with sous-bois and tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. A beautifully balanced Chambolle-Musigny that reveals touches of orange peel on the finish. This is a classy, sophisticated offering. (Drink between 2022-2036). 91-93 Points
