DOMAINE FÉLIX CUVÉE SAINT CLAIRE SAINT-BRIS 2014

0.00

The one permitted appellation for Sauvignon Blanc in Burgundy.  At their best these wines rival Sancerre in quality, and the lower prices inevitably commanded only adds to their attractiveness.  Juicy and refreshing, delivers the bright fruit of Sauvignon over sweet peas and green peppers, with hints of nettle and smokiness at its edges.  A fine stony mineral spine adds important depth, clearly distinguishing the wine's Old World origins.  A classy little number.

Rosé and Sauvignon Blanc?!  Beautiful Burgundy done differently

Considering Pinot Noir a solid variety for Rosé, Felix couldn’t have been happier on tracking down his Burgundian namesake to find they indeed excelled at this style.  Happier also to find them farming less appreciated appellations which correspondingly sell for substantially less than the big communes, supporting our continued campaign of sourcing interesting wines at the value end.

Tracing winemaking history back to the 1600s, today’s phase of the Félix family’s operation took root in 1981 with Hervé Félix taking over the domaine.  Holdings quickly expanded from 11 to 31 hectares, bottling was now done at the domaine, and vineyard chemical use was greatly reduced, to culture raisonée methodology (chemicals only used when absolutely necessary to save a crop) from the early 2000s.
