Joseph Drouhin Beaune "Clos des Mouches" Rouge 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright, dark red. Slightly reduced aromas of raspberry and smoky minerality smell energetic and ripe. Wonderfully silky and rich, showing noteworthy depth and concentration to its red and darker fruit and mineral flavors. Finishes spicy, tactile and very long. A superb showing today, but this wine has the stuffing for a slow evolution in bottle." - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous *(91-93 Points)*"_Outstanding!_ This displays a peculiar kind of reduction the Burgundians call cassis flower, which isn't unpleasant per se but it's not desirable either; it's difficult to say whether it will eventually dissipate though my rating offers the benefit of the doubt. The middle weight flavors possess a notably finer mouth feel with a bit more minerality as well, all wrapped in a well-balanced and impressively persistent finish. This isn't technically perfect today but everything else is in place for this to age well." - Allen Meadows, Burghound *(91 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.
