Gevrey Chambertin "La Justice", Gilbert et Christine Felletig 2017

WF00414

New product

Fullish red purple, with a richer softer strawberry nose with a few darker more animal notes alongside. A touch firm up front, but there is a really engaging vibrant yet ripe red fruit behind. Excellent length, very promising.

The DOMAIN

OUR DOMAIN

HENRI FELETTIG, SECOND GENERATION TO SETTLE ON THIS SOIL, IN 1965, HAD INHERITED 2 HECTARES OF VINES AND 1 HECTARE OF GRAPES, FROM HIS PARENTS, BUT THE GRAPES ARE INTENDED FOR THE VILLAGE COOPERATIVE.

THE 1969 HARVEST WILL BE THE FIRST VINTAGE VINIFIED BY HENRI.

IN 1973, REINE AND HENRI PURCHASED A LARGER PROPERTY IN ORDER TO INCREASE THE VINEYARD AREA.

FOR 20 YEARS, THEY BOUGHT AND LEASED ALL THE PLOTS THEY COULD ATTAIN, IN ORDER TO EXPAND THE WINE LIST, FINALLY REACHING A SURFACE AREA OF 9 HECTARES IN 1992.

IN 1993, A GAEC WAS FORMED BETWEEN THE PARENTS AND THEIR CHILDREN, CHRISTINE AND GILBERT, THUS BECOMING A FAMILY FARM.

THE WINE LIST IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY POPULAR, AND TODAY THE ESTATE EXTENDS FROM GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN TO BEAUNE, VIA LES HAUTES COTES DE NUITS AND BEAUNE, ON AN AREA OF 13 HECTARES.

THE TYPICAL BURGUNDY FARM HAS TODAY 100 PLOTS, ALL CULTIVATED IN LUTTE RAISONNÉE.

Review

90-92 points Jasper Morris, MW: "Gilbert notes that La Justice always needs to be picked early as you have to watch the ripening. The yield in 2017 of 40 hl/ha is a lot for this vineyard, which they have made since 1995, but he feels that such generosity has done the wine good. Fullish red purple, with a richer softer strawberry nose with a few darker more animal notes alongside. A touch firm up front, but there is a really engaging vibrant yet ripe red fruit behind. Excellent length, very promising. Tasted: November 2018."
