Joseph Drouhin Clos des Mouches Premier Cru Rouge 2018

Winemaker Notes

An exceptional wine. Beautiful, deep-red ruby color, with the bright sheen of great Burgundies. Intense and fresh nose for the young wines. Primary notes of red fruit dominate, such as Morello cherry (“griotte”, or wild cherry), raspberry, blackberry. There are hints of complexity with smoky flavors evolving towards licorice. When the wine is maturing, aromas of pepper, tobacco, humus and undergrowth appear. When drinking the wine, the first impression is always clear-cut and the texture fleshy. The body is firm without being rough, well meshed without being heavy. There is great freshness in the younger wines. With age, the wine gets rounder. It takes on “gras” (velvety texture) and a more precise architecture, supported by silky tannins. It is lively and refined at the same time. There remains a final and most pleasing sensation of harmony, fullness and delicate tannins, as the wine lingers on the palate.

95 Points - James Suckling

A perfumed and spicy wine with ripe strawberries, smoke and chocolate. Full, very savory and intense. Long aftertaste with lots of perfume. Fine, creamy texture. Really spicy at the finish.

94 Points - Decanter

The Drouhins' red version of the Clos des Mouches combines grapes from the high and low parts of the Premier Cru and is a blend of seven different micro cuvées. Fermented with 25% whole bunches and aged in 20% new wood, this is textured, refined and well balanced, with all the focus and freshness of one of Beaune's most special sites.
