Perfumed and pretty Bourgogne Rouge. Continues the house’s style of balancing brightness with earthiness, a nose of rose petal and small red berries is countenanced by a touch of herbs and steminess. Fruit remains bright on the palate with cranberry and raspberry, with a cooling quality on the palate which renders this wine immensely drinkable. Tannins are ultra fine, with some lead pencil/graphite minerality adding depth to the finish. Everything you’d expect from a well made entry level red Burgundy, it has poise and definition, and at 12.5% alcohol, all too approachable.

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.
