2015 Domaine Gilbert et Christine Felettig 'Les Gruenchers' Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru

$124.95
WA91-93

Domaine Feletigg is what we think of when we think of Burgundy. Small, family owned, organic, hands-off winemaking, and of course complex and insanely delicious. The 2015 'Les Gruenchers' is close to "Les Fuées" and only a stones throw away from the classic “Les Charmes” vineyard. The 2015 vintage was warmer and riper overall than the 2016. “Les Gruenchers” shows the slightly more voluptuous fruit with red plums and rich wild strawberry. There is a soft note of cocoa and mushroom on the palate. A stunning wine that is ready to drink. wines

Wine Advocate

The maiden 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Gruenchers comes from purchased fruit and includes 30% whole bunch fruit. It has a clean and precise bouquet, the 50% new oak neatly integrated and allowing the black cherry, raspberry preserve and iodine scents to flourish. The palate is medium-bodied with quite a firm grip in the mouth. There is clearly good volume here, very well balanced with a sense of brightness and clarity on the grippy finish. Again, like Gilbert's Chambolle Les Feusselottes, it deserves 4-5 years in bottle and will surely drink well for 12-15 years. Good swap
