Grands-Echezeaux Grand Cru

Domaine du Clos Frantin


Côte de Nuits


AOC Grand cru

Grape variety

Pinot noir

Located above the village of Flagey-Échezeaux, the Grand Cru "Grands-Échezeaux" extends on the hillside between the Premiers Crus of Vosne-Romanée and the Clos Vougeot.
Its name derives from "chesaux", a word of Gallo-Roman origin meaning a group of dwellings, presumably referring to an ancient hamlet.
Our two plots are planted on calcareous brown soils, with a significant presence of clay and the proximity of a slab of rock that is also found in the upper part of the Clos Vougeot.


This wine expresses the exceptional character of a great terroir combined with a great grape variety. Its dense 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. Power and elegance on the palate reveal voluptuous mouthfeel and sophisticated tannins.

Food/wine pairing

Taste this wine with finely prepared roasted or stewed meats (beef, lamb, pork, game, duck), or with medium to mature cheeses.
Recipe suggestion: crusted beef tenderloin with morels and red wine sauce
