Domaine du Clos Frantin's Echezeaux comes from the climat of Champs Traversins. The slope is steep and the soil sandy which is why the vines are planted counter to the slope instead of with it. 
The feature of this climat is its wonderful aromatics. The sandy soil means finer tannins and more elegance, a character that we all love in Burgundy.
The 2016 from Domaine du Clos Frantin continues the line of exquisite Echezeaux from this vineyard.
We have 8 bottles left and for today only we offer the wine at a 25% Pre Arrival Discount rather than the usual 15%. Be quick if you wish to save an extra $52.25 a bottle.

Frantin Echezeaux

Tim Atkin MW:
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. 96 Points

Jasper Morris MW: 
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. 92-94 Points

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

Frantin Grands Echezeaux 2016 Header
Domaine du Clos Frantin Grands-Echezeaux Grand Cru 2016
2 bottles left
Domaine du Clos Frantin's Grands Echezeaux is always a very special wine.

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 Australian allocation was 24 bottles and we have just 2 bottles remaining.

This wine is in stock.

Tim Atkin MW: 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. 96 Points

Burghound: (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+. 92-95 Points
