Re: TN: 2013 Felettig Chambolle-Musigny VV

It’s nice to see a good note for 2013. This was Gilbert's breakout vintage. His Combettes is especially good. 2019 is his best vintage to date, though, I'm convinced. He went fully organic this year, too. I bought a fair amount of Combettes in 2014. I am waiting on that one. It is nice but seems to...

Great note. Even at the current pricing, this is a must have for me in many vintages. The 1993 is outstanding- but I have to confess I would not have thought the 1992 would go this long either. My current recent vintage fave for long distance is the 2009. A bit atypical- at least right now- but sti...

I am quite surprised - I have always found the Dancer wines to have more body, ie be richer than Roulot.
I don't have alot of experience with Vincent Dancer. This might be a combination of site, year and a change in direction in winemaking? The wine is stunning.
