Domaine du Clos Frantin Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru
Always a super reliable, benchmark domaine, and well-priced, Clos Frantin’s 2017s continue a good run of form. We were also really impressed by a number of the Maison’s wines this year which have closed the gap with its flagship domaine whilst offering tremendous value. As Neal martin comments, Bichot can make “really quite delicious, complex wines that often surprise people in blind tastings when not swayed by the label.” We feel our selections, from village wines to the most senior Grand Crus, all show the precision, typicity and expressive, vibrant, phenolically mature fruit that make a case or two essential purchases for all Burgundy lovers.
"This is so wonderful with an earthy, cedar, tobacco, mint and cacao character. Full body, silky tannins. This really is superb. It goes on for minutes. A glorious red. From organically grown grapes. Drink now." 96 pts, James Suckling
"20-25% stems. Mid cherry, aromatic red fruit. Lovely chewy texture allied to freshness and just the right weight of fruit. Correct rather than exceptional." 16.5 pts, Julia Harding MW
