Walt Churchill’s Market, 3320 Briarfield. Maumee, (419) 794-4000. Noon to 5:00 PM. Vertical Tasting: Domaine du Clos Frantin Gevrey-Chambertin ‘Les Murots’ – French Burgundy (Pinot Noir).Clos Frantin sits on some of the world’s finest terroir for Pinot Noir, featuring 5 Grand Crus. Unfortunately, the wines were rather poorly made until recently purchased by superstar Burgundy negociant,  Albert Bichot.  Bichot radically upgraded the winemaking to match the storied terroir and this wine has been going from strength to strength, but remains a great value and underappreciated. We shall be tasting the 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008 vintages. Premium tasting.
