Joseph Drouhin Beaune "Clos des Mouches" Rouge 1976

Winemaker's Notes:

"Unusually fresh and relatively bright aromas in the context of where the vast majority of '76s are today, even from larger format bottles, with spicy red and black fruit, sous-bois and earth hints that introduce rich, delicious and still vibrant medium full flavors underpinned by firm but integrated tannins on the long if ever-so-slightly drying finish. This is highly complex and drinking perfectly now and though it will hold for another 50 years in this format, I can't see any further improvement. A first rate example of the vintage." - Burghound *(90 points)*

In 1880, Joseph Drouhin, who was from the Chablis region originally, chose the city of Beaune to found the business that bears his name.  Over the years and with each generation, the vineyard estate grew.  At the same time, the founder's passionate search for excellence and knowledge was handed down like a family heirloom; Maison Joseph Drouhin continues to ensure this valuable family heritage. Dedication to the diversity of Burgundy has always been the sole focus and vocation of Maison Joseph Drouhin, as vineyards - mostly premier and grand crus - were acquired in all major areas.   Out of firm conviction, Drouhin has adopted a biological and biodynamic approach to viticulture.  Listening to nature: from vine to glass, at every step in the elaboration of the wine, a profound respect and deference to nature prevails. From its very beginning, Maison Joseph Drouhin has aimed for an ideal of perfection and elegance.  The style of Joseph Drouhin combines balance, harmony and character, providing infinite pleasure.   Thanks to its open-minded world view, Joseph Drouhin introduces the best of Burgundy to all continents.  Its active presence in many countries is the surest proof of its desire to get acquainted and understand other cultures and styles of living.
