91-94 points Jasper Morris, MW: "A not quite monopoly for the Felletigs who are probably the only source who bottle it separately. It is clearly a cuvée close to Gilbert’s heart. From barrel: dense colour if a bit more sombre than some, as is the nose, some torrefaction, then a thick red fruit, maybe a touch cooked, darkish. From wooden amphore: Slightly more vibrant purple, nose fresher but not more open, much juicier and rounder, then good acidity. The first sample probably just needed freshening up a touch. Tasted: November 2018."
Though not quite a monopole, Domaine Felettig owns the vast majority and is the only producer to bottle Les Carrières. Located on the Morey-Saint-Denis side of Chambolle near Bonnes Mares and Les Fuées, Les Carrières is special in the sense that the soil is primarily composed of white marl, similar to Les Cras and parts of Bonnes Mares. A wine of great purity, finesse, and longevity with an ideal southeast facing exposure.
