Domaine Felettig is a family affair. With just 2 hectares of vines, Henri Felettig is the family's second-generation winemaker, and set up in 1965 in Chambolle-Musigny. In 1993, Reine and Henri Felettig set up a GAEC with Christine and Gilbert, their children. Today, the estate comprises 13 hectares of red and white wines. The domaine produces renowned Burgundy wines, including Premiers Crus such as Vosne-Romanée, Nuit-Saint-Georges and Les Carrières, Les Lavrottes and Les Charmes.
Geographical location of Domaine Felettig
Red and white wine is a passion for Henri, Gilbert and Christine Felettig. Together, they have developed an estate that today stretches from Beaune to Gevrey-Chambertin . The domaine also makes a detour to the Hautes Côtes de Nuit and Beaume. Domaine Felettig comprises around a hundred parcels. As is often the case in Burgundy, the soils are predominantly clay-limestone, and the vines face east-south-east.
Domaine Felettig wines
Three generations of winemaking in Burgundy may not sound like much. And yet, for each vintage, the domaine produces 2 Grands Crus and no less than 13 Premiers Crus. The main grape variety is Pinot Noir for the red wine and Chardonnay for the white. Échezeaux Grand Cru and Corton Grand Cru Les Grandes Lolières are wines aged 50% in new oak barrels. The same applies to the domaine's Premiers Crus, whose vines thrive on the slopes of Chambolle-Musigny. These include Les Carrières, Les Lavrottes, Les Feusselottes, Les Combottes and Les Fuées. The Gevrey-Chambertin La Justice appellation is also worth a taste.
Some of Domaine Felettig's Burgundy appellations are blends. Cuvées Vosne-Romanée village and Nuits Saint Georges village, for example, are Domaine Felettig blends. Among the estate's many crémants, Premier Cru Clos Sorbé comes from vines in the village of Morey-Saint-Denis, while Premier Cru Clos Les Gruenchers is from Chambolle-Musigny.
