The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes reveals a generous, fruit-driven bouquet of ripe berries and cherries, framed by a deft touch of toasty new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with ripe acids, a charming core of fruit, attractive purity and a nicely defined finish.

The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes 1er Cru, which comes from vines planted in 1965 by Felettig s father, is aged in 60% new oak. It has the most refined and nuanced bouquet among all of Felettig s Chambolles – a beautiful melange of red and black fruit, hints of sous-bois and rose petals. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannin. There is a natural sucrosity to this Chambolle, even a hint of brown sugar and fig toward the complex, lingering finish. One of the best Chambolle-Musigny cuvee in 2017.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2045
