Joseph Drouhin Beaune Blanc Clos des Mouches 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2011 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches has an attractive nose with spice, jasmine and nectarine scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and impressive delineation with subtle pithy fruit emerging toward the finish, then hints of dried mango and citrus peel lingering on the aftertaste. This is a very fine Clos des Mouches...90" WA 08/13

A stunner from a great vintage whose wines are showing well now. Elegant fruit and wood, balanced, fine acidity. A special wine.

100% Chardonnay and the 2010 opens up on a very floral and complex bouquet offering notes of white flowers and rose bud. On the palate fruity notes abound with aromas of roasted almonds and chestnuts evolving toward toasted bread flavors.

A beautifully layered nose is remarkably complex as it combines notes of petrol mineral reduction lemon zest white flowers and a hint of wood. There is reasonably good detail to the relatively soft and forward flavors that possess fine energy and excellent length. I wouldn t call this a classic Drouhin Clos des Mouches but it is lovely all the same. Burghound.

Die erste Begegnung mit diesem Wein ist von einem delikaten und konzentrierten Bouquet bestimmt. Über einem Grundton von Honig und Mandeln lässt sich in der Jugend eine Röstaromatik ausmachen, die sich im Verlaufe der Zeit zu einem harmonischen Ganzen entwickelt. Dieser Premier Cru der Einzellage Clos des Mouches verfügt über eine kristalline Struktur und über eine ausgeprägte Fruchtsäure, die auf perfekte Art in die mächtige Textur integriert ist. Das Finale ist ausserordentlich. Geben Sie diesem Wein die nötige Zeit, dann entwickelt er sich zu einer grossen Persönlichkeit, die ein besonderes Essen auf ebenso besondere Art ergänzt.

This Chardonnay is distinguished by its elegance and velvety finesse. Dry, balanced and drinking well today. "Mouche" is colloquial for "Bee" and is the inspiration for naming this vineyard area as beekeepers began to set up their hives nearby years ago.
