2017 domaine albert bichot (clos frantin), richebourg grand cru
Why We're Buying
If you have some time on your hands, Domaine du Clos Frantin (Albert Bichot) Richebourg Grand Cru deserves your consideration. It's a slow-developing pinot noir with a mineral-driven complexion and impressive tannins. It culminates in a sweeping finale that justifies the opulent price tag. It also returned 39.4% on investment from 2017 to 2021.
Offers precocious red cherries, orange blossom and tobacco, almost Romanée-Saint-Vivant in style. The palate is well balanced with fine structure. I like the firmness and backbone, and the grip on the finish.
