Les Murots is to the east of the village, on the lower slopes, with chalky clay soils underneath poor scree gravel.
There is nice concentration here and sappy, crunchy redcurrant and wild strawberry fruit on the nose with a light touch of cacao and anise. The palate is charming and unpretentious, cherry and red berry fruits jostling with spice and earth notes. A real Gevrey that can be enjoyed quite early but will develop more nuances over the next seven years.

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 it’s 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.
