Domaine FELETTIG Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "6 Climats" 2021

Wine Region: Burgundy - France

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: "A blend of Chabiots, Chatelots, Plantes, Gruenchers, Aux Combottes and Les Combottes, Felettig's one-off 2021 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru 6 Climats amounts to an average yield of a derisory 12 hectoliters per hectare, but its quality is some compensation for the lack of quantity. Offering up aromas of plums, red cherries, peonies, spices and blood orange, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and seamless, with supple tannins and an enveloping core of pure, perfumed fruit. Only five barrels were produced. (Jan 2023)" - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

About the winery:
Domaine Felettig is one of the names that Burgundy connoisseurs would rather keep to themselves. Gilbert and his sister Christine form the second generation of winegrowers on the estate, after having succeeded from their father and founder of the Domaine, Henri Felettig. Pauline, Gilbert's daughter, has recently joined them. With a history of only 40 years, the Domaine has seen many changes from its very beginning and has expanded rapidly to reach a size of 12.5 hectares, whose 60% rented. Production is small, quality is high, as is the demand, which is why the family's wines are rarely seen outside France.
