The Burgundy Report 

Tasted in Chambolle-Musigny with Gilbert Felettig, 22 November 2017.

2/3 from Premeaux – Chaillots – the rest from the Vosne side of Nuits – Lavières. “I was never happy with the individual cuvées, but they work really quite well together.”
Deep, faintly reduced. A little gas in this one, but once again a freshness of attack, dark fruit – more mid-palate tannin and a little spicy oak flavour too. Floral finishing. Good wine to keep! December 17, 2021

Gilbert on 2016:

2016 was very complicated. On average we had 60% less volume – it was worse in the Hautes Côtes where we lost 90%. We have compliments from people who taste and I can see that we have some good wines but we had to change our style of wine, for instance there are whole-clusters used in all our cuvées – 20-100% – just to have enough volume to vinify. I don’t really know this style so well as I’m a ‘destemmer’ – ​
in 2014 and 2015 I had made a few tests with whole-clusters so it wasn’t a shock, but it’s been a nice discovery! ​I’m not a big connoisseur of whole-clusters, but give me a Dujac Malconsorts and I’ll be happy!
