Burgundy 2019 - Albert Bichot and Domaine du Clos Frantin

Albert Bichot and Domaine du Clos Frantin

Proud of his 47 certifications, this Burgundian producer advocates a “change of mindset” regarding the use of pesticides. All the wines of Domaine du Clos Frantin and Domaine du Pavillon have been organic since 2018.

2019: a really pleasing set of wines from Domaines Bichot, with once again the highlights coming from jewel in the crown Domaine du Clos Frantin, although honourable mention for the sumptuous Beaune 1er Cru ‘Clos de la Mouche’ – one of my favourite whites and another “under the radar” gem (see video). I think 2019 is Clos Frantin’s best vintage since the glorious 2015, and really shows what a great year it is for Vosne Romanée, from bottom to top. The village Vosne is a dinner party must (especially in magnums – and like with 2015 I’ll certainly be snaffling a case for myself), and the 1er Cru Malconsorts is sensational – “an iron fist in an iron gauntlet wrapped in velvet”. The Echezeaux – a Decanter Award “Best In Show” winner (like Honest Grapes :) ) this year is again superb, and there is a new addition to the range – Vosne 1er Cru ‘Les Rouges’ – a vineyard lying atop Echezeaux – which particularly impressed for its density, drive, and definition – and at a great value point, above the village wine but below Malconsorts.
