This is restrained and cool to the point of being all but aromatically mute and only aggressive swirling reveals reluctant notes of red currant, cherry and floral hints. There is an ultra-refined mouth feel to the lacy and almost delicate middle weight flavors that culminate in a linear, balanced and lingering finish. This is pretty much textbook Feusselottes.
There are only two casks of the new Feusselottes in the Noëllat cellars, with one of them new this year. Maxime Cheurlin will begin to pick the grapes here in 2016, but the owner of the vines did so in this first vintage. The wine offers up a very pretty and quite delicate bouquet of red plums, cherries, raw cocoa, gamebird, a lovey base of soil and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, suave and silky, with a sappy core, fine-grained tannins and lovely focus and grip on the long and elegant finish. A lovely new member of the family! 2021-2055.
(from rented 60-year-old vines): Bright, dark red. Alluring scents of raspberry, spices and flowers. Concentrated and creamy on the palate, showing lovely sweetness and energy to the red berry and spice flavors. Finishes with serious tannic clout and lingering notes of spices and menthol. This wine has the spicy depth and structure to age gracefully.(ST)
