Domaine du Clos Frantin
Grands-Echezeaux Grand Cru
Pre Arrival $263.00
From a very small 0.25 ha parcel owned by the Domaine. Deep red-black. Wonderful nose of Asian spices with dark cherry, plum and something hauntingly alluring providing the background notes. Complex, concentrated, sappy fruit flavours, with a lovely mouthfilling suppleness and more of the spice. Very persistant and fine on the finish. Really all you expect from Grands Echezeaux but seldom get.
You will find numerous other reviews of this wine in our website. Click here to read them all. They all praise the wine for its aromatics and Asian Spice - a character we all know and love from other more expensive red Burgundies!
The wine was sold out but the Domaine has very generously allocated us a few extra cases from their reserve stock. If you would like some of this classic in the making I suggest you act quickly. We feel the wine is exceptional value for the quality.
And just to further confirm the status of the wine it has also just been awarded a Gold Medal at the International Wine Challenge 2012! Why not pop half a dozen into the cellar and enjoy the wine over the next decade or two?
