Another small-is-beautiful, reference point worthy example is their .09 hectare parcel of 75+ year old Chambolle Musigny les Feusselottes. This was sold off prior to its first vintage in-house bottling in 2017, and has quickly become a reference point worthy example. Whilst not priced shyly, it promises to deliver the Chambollean goodness and then some. Allan’s note sounds delicious to me…..
In 2019, Guillaume vinified the Feusselottes with whole berries in barrel, carbonic style. This allowed for an even more delicate infusion, brightler and lighter on its feet than Feusselottes can often be. Again, this is a reference point worthy example……
“(from Feusselottes proper). This is the first wine to display any discernible amount of wood and even here it’s quite subtle as it easily allows the markedly spicy aromas of red and black pinot fruit and exotic tea to be appreciated. There is both good volume and richness to the refined and lightly stony middle weight flavors that conclude in a dusty, balanced and utterly delicious finale. The intrinsic finesse of a fine Feusselottes is on display. (91-93)/2027+” Allan Meadows ———-> “particularly outstanding for their respective appellations and especially merit your attention”
“The first vintage to be domaine bottled was 2017. The fruit from two ouvrées of old vines (1946) is 100% destemmed and vinified in two barrels to yield enough juice to complete one. Paler in colour, but still a fresh glowing purple, this is a very elegant Feusselottes. Some redcurrant, high toned from the element of carbonic maceration in the vinification technique, which makes the wine less sombre than this appellation can be.” 91-94 Jasper Morris Four Stars
