There are many outstanding Red Burgundies from 2015 and amongst the finest are the great Grand Crus from Domaine du Clos Frantin.
Domaine du Clos Frantin had incredible success at the International Wine Challenge 2017. In fact they cleaned up. Of 14 wines submitted an incredible 12 won Gold Medals and stacked up a tally of no less than 13 Trophies!
  
IWC Trophy NV The Chambertin 2015 was one of the wines that received a Gold Medal and then topped the class and was awarded the Trophy for the Best Chambertin. This follows on from the highly successful 2014.
Not only did the wine perform well at the competition, it has also received terrific reviews from the critics. At our dinner with Christian Ciamos from Albert Bichot the Chambertin 2015 was the standout wine. It was incredibly deep and complex. It just needs a decade in the cellar!

We have just 5 bottles left in stock. 

Chambertin is never cheap but at our special offer this highly rated wine is a great buy. A must-have for every serious Burgundy cellar. Put a bottle or two away and enjoy in 2027.

Frantin Chambertin label
Wine Advocate - Neal Martin: 
The 2015 Chambertin Grand Cru has a very expressive bouquet that comes racing out of the traps: ebulliant morello cherries, crushed strawberry, rose petals and damson scents that are quite intoxicating even at this prenatal stage. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, tensile tannin, layers of crisp red cherry and raspberry fruit sprinkled with white pepper and clove. This builds nicely in the mouth and it fans out gloriously, whereas the Charmes-Chambertin remains recalcitrant and linear. This is superb. 93-95 Points

Steen Ohman Winehog.org: The Chambertin is another step up in intensity - yet it's a remarkably refined and floral wine. The nose offer juicy red and dark berry fruit brought forward by a very intense minerality .. very floral confirming that Gevrey did very well in this vintage. On the palate intense and concentrated but still lightfooted and refined .. impressive what the best terroirs can offer in terms of backbone and focus. An outstanding Le Chambertin .. bigger and better than the Grands Echezeaux? - yes perhaps .. but prefer the exuberant energy of the GE
. 95-96 Points

Burghound: 
Not surprisingly there is better freshness to the ripe but pure nose of red and dark currant, spice and floral scents. There is a really lovely sense of underlying tension to the rich yet beautifully detailed flavors that possess excellent size, weight and mid-palate density, all wrapped in a serious, stony and mildly austere finish that goes on and on. This most impressive effort is also indisputably built-to-age and like the Grands Ech, is a wine that is going to need plenty of patience. 
95 Points
Wine Spectator, Bruce Sanderson: 94-97 Points
Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report: Medium-plus colour. The nose is impressive with mineral and faintly animale notes mingling with dark fruit - very complex. Concentrated fruit magnificently covers the tannin. Linear entry to the palate, only subltly widening into the mid-palate before impressively bursting into the multi-dimensional finish. Wow! And I thought the Clos de Vougeot was good - this is fantastic quality.

Bertagna Clos St-Denis 2016 Bettane Header
Domaine Bertagna Clos St-Denis Grand Cru 2016
Bettane and Desseauve are France's top wine critics. Each year they taste and review over 10,000 French Wines.
 
Late last year I was delighted to receive news that Domaine Bertagna's Clos St-Denis 2016 has received their highest award - being named One of France's Top 10 Wines of the Year. 
 
And that's not just for Burgundy. It is for all French wines. You can imagine the big names on the list.
 
It is also worth pointing out that this was the only wine from the Cote d'Or in the Top 10.
 
When I tasted the wine at the domaine earlier last year I was blown away by the complexity and depth. It seems Bettane and Desseauve have the same opinion.

Bettane and Dessauve: 
One of the 10 Best French Wines of the Year!
The most profound Clos St-Denis of our tasting in a vintage particularly favourable to this climat. Very dark fruit, structure, huge power and mouthfeel with a most complex finish. Incredible breed - a lot to experience - an undeniable success in 2016. 19/20

Darren Harris: Very dense red-purple. An enticing nose of bright, fresh fruit, with much spice and a touch of graphite. The palate is multi-layered with deep fruit flavours and more spicy elements. Intense but not heavy. There is oak but it is coated by such tremendous fruit that the impression is of silkiness. Balanced and precise with a tangy note that Bertagna (and indeed most Clos St-Denis) shows every vintage. From 50 year old vines and built to age. My favourite wine at Bertagna (again).
 
A Grand Cru for the Ages!
