Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Echézeaux Grand Cru, Domaine du Clos Frantin was picked on 27 September and includes 40% whole bunch and the same percentage of new oak. It has a brisk dark cherry and cranberry-scented bouquet, touches of blood orange and mandarin emerging with time. Not bad at all considering how this grand cru was damaged by frost. The palate is mediumbodied with crisp, quite sharp tannin and very fine acidity. hile it does not quite bestow the depth and structure on the finish of the 2015, this is a well-crafted grand cru that should be considered a success and a worthy follow-up to the 2015. 90-92
