Vinous – 92
The maiden 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru comes partly from four parcels from Felettig’s father, augmented by fruit from local friends (so half domaine and about half négoce) that underwent a slightly faster malo than other cuvées, matured entirely in new wood. It has to shake off a bit of reduction but eventually offers attractive brambly red fruit mixed with sous-bois and tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. A beautifully balanced Chambolle-Musigny that reveals touches of orange peel on the finish. This is a classy, sophisticated offering.
Anticipated maturity: 2022-2036
