Domaine FELETTIG Echezeaux Grand Cru 2019

Wine Region: Burgundy - France

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: "Felettig produced 400 liters of the 2019 Echezeaux Grand Cru, and it's his best to date, blossoming in the glass with a deep bouquet of wild berries, plums, exotic spices, rose petals and bergamot. Full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, it's a deep, textural wine, with considerable concentration, lively acids and a broad-shouldered chassis of powdery tannin. Felettig laments that his holdings (located in lieu-dit Les Treux) were only planted in 2001, but already yields are declining precipitously as the rootstocks suffer in hotter, drier vintages." - William Kelly, 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.
