Description

Rosé for Burgundy purists from 100% Pinot Noir.  Grown and made as a rosé and interestingly winemaking involves two days’ maceration, rather than being of saignée method.  An interesting and complete style, combines a lightness and prettiness with depth.  It is of course Pinot-esque, with an earthy depth and a brush of fruit tannin over the mid palate, wrapped around sweeter fruit flavours of strawberry, orange rind, wild cherries and some steminess which adds interest – the sweet/savoury-earthy pull of the wine makes this a compelling pink.

Domaine Felix / Burgundy

Sensational value Burgundy on the up

 

How could Felix not import Domaine Félix?  Namesakes aside, this family estate is a big tick alongside the increasingly rare paradigm of good value and high quality Burgundy. 

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.  The winery is based in Saint-Bris, with vineyard holdings spread through the Yonne department, taking in Côtes d’Auxerre and Petit Chablis, plus Irancy and Saint-Bris (Sauvignon Blanc).

Son Olivier Félix  is stepping up to take over running of the estate, and with the quality of the wines quietly taking a turn upwards, we’re particularly happy with the current set of releases, and pleased to finally bring in their excellent Passe-Tout-Grains Pinot Noir/Gamay blend.
