Domaine Du Clos Frantin Grands Echezeaux Grand Cru
Price: $275.11 excl. GST
- Tasting Notes
Bright, healthy dark red. Perfumed scents of redcurrant, raspberry, dried flowers and rust, lifted by a minty nuance. Very rich and concentrated, with a saline element adding interest to the flavors of strawberry, raspberry and minerals. At once energetic and seriously stuffed: the roundness comes from clay but the rocks in the soil ensure structure and vivacity. Big tannins spread out to saturate the palate and the front teeth on the tactile, broad, very long finish.

The 2013 Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru (Domaine du Clos Frantin) has a more pixelated bouquet than the Echézeaux — very nicely focused with more tangible mineralité developing in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, impressive depth and focus, quite tensile with a hint of spice developing on the harmonious finish that exerts a gentle grip. This is a very fine Grands Echézeaux from Bichot.
