"A domaine on the move.... well the French like their advertising to be right out of the 1960s so we'll embrace the 'on the move' slogan. Their village Chambolle is from between 25 and 30 parcels throughout the area, with ripe and plump flavours and very approachable."
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.
