Grands-Echezeaux Grand Cru
Domaine du Clos Frantin
Côte de Nuits
AOC Grand cru
Flagey-Echezeaux, located along the “Route des Grands Crus”, is an appellation that exclusively produces Grand Cru wines, including our "Champs traversins". The appellation’s name is derived from the term "Chezeaux", which refers to the grouping together of the surrounding hamlets. Our plot is located at an altitude of 300 metres, the vines faces east for optimal exposure to the sun and are planted in very light soil on a steep slope .
An elegant, racy nose with aromas of plum, peppery spices, tea and cocoa. The palate is fleshy and well balanced with pleasing tannins. Nice long finish.
This exquisite wine is an ideal match for finely prepared red meats, all types of game, stews, marinated red meats, as well as most cheeses.
