Domaine du Clos Frantin, a beautiful 18th century estate, is located in Nuits-Saint-Georges at the heart of the Côte de Nuits, home to the world’s most rare and prestigious appellations where the Pinot Noir grape flourishes. The vines cover a surface area of 7.3 hectares, of which 3.9 are Premier and Grand Crus.
The use of fertilizers and herbicides has been replaced by compost and ploughing. Respect for the soil, severe pruning and performing green harvest if needed allow us to obtain low volumes of high-quality grapes. Our vineyards are organic certified since 2012 and starting with the 2018 vintage, all the wines from the estate will bear the certified “organic wine” label.
Our winery is equipped with modern vinification equipment that nevertheless allows us to respect traditional methods. Working with gravity has replaced mechanical operations to better respect the quality and aromatic potential of the grapes.
Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru "Les Malconsorts"
We are lucky to own 1.75 hectares of this exceptional Premier Cru. Its particularly sunny microclimate and its rendzina soil yield a complex wine that is powerful and full-bodied on the palate.
