Drouhin Beaune Clos des Mouches Rouge 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

"Once again reduction dominates the fruit. The dense, serious and powerful flavors possess a textured mouth feel on the mid-palate though the impressively long finish is rustic, austere and mildly drying....My instinct is that this will ultimately be pleasant enough if served with food as there is no reason that good complexity cannot develop but I doubt that the finish will ever completely harmonize. Pessimists will want to drink this young for its fruit and optimists will age it for a few years to allow more depth to develop." *-Burghound (86-90 Points)*

Domaine Drouhin has been on the viticultural cutting edge in Oregon since our first plantings, and we continue to set the pace. The 90 acres of hillside vineyards that ribbon our 225-acre estate are at the very heart of Domaine Drouhin wines. Philippe Drouhin is in charge of all of the estate vineyards in Oregon & Burgundy & it is his vision & passion that drives our advances & improvements in winegrowing year after year. Situated atop the Dundee Hills, between 400 and 800 feet in elevation, our site was selected for its remarkable similarity in climate, latitude and aspect to the legendary vineyards of Burgundy. DDO places more emphasis on viticulture than most producers in America. Our vines are perhaps the most densely-planted in the New World, with an average of 3,300 plants to the acre. We are also one of the few vineyards in the country to cultivate our own rootstocks and propagate all of our own plant materials. This allows us to further our vineyards with site specific rootstocks and plants. Read less
