Officially recognised as organic from the 2019 vintage, Domaine du Clos Frantin is the star estate within the wider Maison Albert Bichot Group. The domaine holds an exceptional range of Grand Cru and Premier Cru sites in the Côte de Nuits and in recent years, a reduction in yields, carefully judged extraction and prudent wholebunch fermentation means that the wines now compete against those from some of the very best producers in Burgundy, whilst remaining fantastically well-priced. Mr.Wheeler is delighted to have secured a small allocation of a range of dizzying Premier and Grand Cru cuvées in 2020 and as such, an early indication of interest is highly recommended.
A rarely encountered vineyard, part of Les Rouges forms a subsection of the Echézeaux Grand Cru. This 1er Cru part is directly above, and displays red cherry with delicate spicy nuances. Exquisite on the palate with plenty of grip from its tannic structure, this is an exceedingly fine Vosne Premier Cru.
