Domaine Clos Frantin
Domaine du Clos Frantin has been the jewel in the crown of the larger group, Albert Bichot, since being acquired in 1969 and has enjoyed all the benefits of strong financial backing by this respected family owned business. Despite holdings in many prestigious appellations, the wines remain modestly priced relative to their peers. Allen Meadows (Burghound) and Neal Martin have both written favourably of the wines.
Albert Bichot is one of those Beaune-based producers that can really surprise. Maybe like me, you spent years dismissing the wines while drinking your La Tâche and the lo and behold, you are served a bottle of Bichot blind and marvel at how well it shows. – Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
