Domaine du Clos Frantin Echezeaux Grand Cru 2016 (4946)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Nuits - Flagey-Echezeaux
Pinot Noir

Jancis Robinson: Fragrant and smoky on the nose and palate. Chewy texture, compressed fruit. Very much in its infancy. Tight, restrained and compact. Unquestionable purity of fruit, which has a charming bitter stemminess to finish. (RH) (Drink between 2020-2040) 18/20

From Champs Traversins. Escaped the frost. Excellent rich noble purple, a little trace of reduction but very promising. Some sand in the soil. High class fruit here with a little touch of velvet, then almost a chocolate note at the back but without falling into obvious over-ripeness. Lower acidity and tannins.



(from a .99 ha parcel in Champs Traversin). An exuberantly spicy nose offers up notes of red and black raspberry, anise, tea and plenty of floral elements, all of which is trimmed in just enough wood to notice. The medium-bodied flavors are round and very rich if less imposing or precise, all wrapped in a solidly persistent finish where a touch of salinity arises. In contrast to the Malconsorts and the Clos de Vougeot, this could reasonably be enjoyed young. 2028+

Every bit as good as the 2015 bottling, albeit one produced in rather more testing conditions, this comes from the Champs Traversins climat in the upper part of the Grand Cru. Yields were down to 25 hectolitres per hectare and this is correspondingly concentrated, with plenty of sweet berry fruit, a touch of good reduction and very promising length. Just needs time. 2024-32.
