Albert Bichot Echezeaux Domaine du Clos Frantin 2019
|France, Burgundy, Morey Saint Denis
Black cherry and blackberry are framed by vanilla and toasty oak in this flamboyant red, which is supple and juicy, with a lingering aftertaste of violet and berry notes, as well as chalky tannins. A profile of unrestrained energy. Best from 2025 through 2045. 360 cases made, 24 cases imported.
The 2019 Grands-Echézeaux Grand Cru comes from Bichot's 0.25 hectares of vines in two parcels close to Drouhin and DRC. It usually yields a maximum of four barrels. This has a perfumed bouquet of expressive red currant, wild strawberry and blood orange aromas that display a little more intensity than the Echézeaux. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-boned tannins. Sophisticated and precise, this is an elegant Grands-Echézeaux with impressive tension and harmony toward the finish, which fans out beautifully. A wonderful wine.
