The Felettigs have fifty year-old vines in the premier cru of Combottes, and their 2012 was raised in the customary fifty percent new wood for this cuvée. The excellent nose jumps from the glass in a mix of cherries, red plums, cocoa, mustard seed a lovely base of soil and a nice touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and complex, with a sappy core, fine elegance, ripe, suave tannins and excellent length and grip on the focused and classy finish. Very fine indeed. 2020-2050.
