Echezeaux Grand Cru

Domaine du Clos Frantin


Côte de Nuits


AOC Grand cru

Grape variety

Pinot noir

Located between Vougeot and Vosne-Romanée, the commune of Flagey-Echezeaux boasts exclusively the two Grands Crus "Grands-Echezeaux" and "Echezeaux". Their name derives from "chesaux", a word of Gallo-Roman origin meaning a group of dwellings, presumably referring to an ancient hamlet.
Our plot is located in the "Champs Traversins" Climat, facing east, at an altitude of 300 metres. The slope, a considerable proportion of sand and gravel, the proximity of the Orveau combe -which brings frechness-, all contribute to imparting unique elegance and sophistication to this wine.


This wine expresses the exceptional character of a great terroir combined with a great grape variety. Its complex nose features notes of red fruit (raspberry), stone fruit (plum) and flowers (rose, peony) enhanced by subtle touches of spices which will evolve over time toward scents of forest undergrowth and leather. The round, precise palate is supported by lovely structure boasting round tannins, which make it very balanced. An exquisite wine with a very long, refined finish.
