The Gevrey lieu-dit La Justice is an interesting vineyard. In theory it is located on the wrong side of the road - east of the D974. However, a fault line allows a base of limestone to come into play and the sandy top soil allows excellent drainage of what is otherwise a flat site.
The vineyard has been highly regarded for a long time and is considered one of the finest lieu-dits in Gevrey-Chambertin. The wine produced is frequently of Premier Cru quality with dark fruit and mineral-infused flavours. The wine has an elegance with the power delivered by the best wines of Gevrey-Chambertin.
Domaine Felettig own parcels totalling 0.39 hectares which produces a wine that is always complex and interesting. John Gilman describes the 2011 as "quite clearly of premier cru quality".
The 2012 vintage is enroute from France. To date I have not spotted any tasting notes from the wine press which is partially why the wine is such great value.
This is a wine I highly recommend. If you are a fan of Gevrey-Chambertin you will not be disappointed! We have less than 4 cases remaining..
