The 96-Point 2016 Grands Echezeaux from Domaine du Clos Frantin

96 Points from Tim Atkin MW - the same as the DRC GE
 
Whenever I taste at Albert Bichot I am always eager to try the Grands Echezeaux. The wine comes from a 0.25 hectare parcel on the Domaine du Clos Frantin estate. The vines are old and the soil very stony. More often than not it is my top wine of the tasting, rating above Chambertin and Richebourg.
 
The wine has a beguiling character - intense but not heavy - spicy and racy - and always with a very expressive nose.
Overnight we received Tim Atkins' 2016 summary. It contained just the scores with the full reviews to follow at the end of this month.
What I did note is that the Domaine du Clos Frantin Grands Echezeaux 2016 and Domaine de la Romanee-Conti Grands Echezeaux 2016 are both scored 96 Points.

The Australian allocation of the Domaine du Clos Frantin is just 24 bottles. It is available at Pre Arrival Price saving you 15%. Be quick!

Frantin 2016 Malconsorts Header
Domaine du Clos Frantin Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts 2016 
The Domaine du Clos Frantin Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Malconsorts is probably our biggest selling serious Burgundy. The location of the vineyard alongside La Tache makes for serious, age-worthy wines that are often equal or better than many Grand Crus.
 
The domaine is the largest owner of Malconsorts, with a 1.7766 ha plot located in the middle of the vineyard. Maison Albert Bichot has owned the plot of Aux Malconsorts since 1964, when they acquired the Grivelet estate including vineyards and the Clos Frantin chai and mansion in Vosne-Romanee.
Once again we are too early for tasting notes. This is our biggest selling serious Burgundy every year so make sure you get your order in soon.
Landed Price $375.00
Pre Arrival Price $318.50
Case of 12 Bottles $3599.40
