Domaine Félix Bourgogne Côtes D’Auxerre Chardonnay 2017
$ 38.00 incl. GST
Out of stock
A bright, mid-weight style. Shows a classic white Burgundy oatmealy nose with some old-school Chablis characters of wax, honey and lanolin, with the tiniest note of oyster shell. These themes continue to the palate, especially honey, over peach and nectarine fruit. Leesy character adds fullness but the wine keeps on its toes, requisitely tense and defined at its edges. An easy drinking bistro style with plenty of charm.
Sold out – restock arriving August.
Domaine Felix / Burgundy
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.
