This stunning Domaine is one of my favourites, and, as usual, our generous allocation is never enough! If you want to jump on the train at the start of the trip, buy these wines now as the Felettigs are only going to get more and more glory, their wines will become more sought after and then the prices will only rise! Their Bourgogne Rouge is a lovely, fresh style of Burgundy, really high quality fruit and an elegant beauty.
If any domaine has made more dramatic progress over the last handful of vintages, we would be very surprised. Why? Quite simply, Gilbert Felettig was dissatisfied with his 2009s, which he found over ripe and excessively oaky. He therefore set about changing everything. Henri Felettig, a former vineyard worker, founded this domaine in 1974. His children Gilbert (viticulture and vinification) and Christine (commercial) joined him in 1993 and now run this 12.5 hectare domaine, which comprises some 100 individual parcels! Viticulture is now organic, with no use of herbicides or insecticides, their vines are mostly old (40-50 years) and everything is harvested by hand. Following a rigorous selection, during which the grapes are sorted in both the vineyard and cuverie, they then undergo a 5-7 day cold maceration at 10°C prior to fermentation and a three week cuvaison.
