Wine Advocate - Neal Martin

The 2016 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru, Domaine du Clos Frantin which comes from two parcels, was picked on 23 September and matured with 40% new oak. It has a clean, focused, almost conservative bouquet that gradually opens with aeration, very pure with crushed strawberry and Morello scents, rose petals and a hint of dried fig. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition, quite structured (more like a Richebourg) with good grip.



(from a .4 ha parcel). Like several wines in the range here the nose is intensely floral in character that adds a sense of elegance to the discreetly spicy black berry fruit and hoisin-suffused aromas. There is a subtle salinity to the beautifully well-detailed and energetic big-bodied flavors that possess superb depth of material and outstanding complexity before terminating in a persistent, mouth coating and very firmly structured finish. This is old school in style and a wine that is going to need plenty of bottle age before the supporting tannins are resolved. 2036+

Honours are even between the Clos Frantin Echézeaux and Grands Echézeaux in 2016, although the latter is a little more floral and open at this stage. Sourced from two parcels that are only 50 metres apart, it’s a fine, polished, scented Grand Cru Pinot with balance, freshness and poise. 2024-30.
