Joseph Drouhin Beaune Premier Cru Clos des Mouches Bla 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"Bright pale yellow. Knockout soil-inflected nose combines lime blossom, crushed stone, wild herbs and clove. Then suave, spicy and aromatic, offering a rare combination of tactile, palate-saturating texture combined with a feeling of weightlessness. Very pure and perfumed wine that rises impressively on the back end, coating the palate with subtle spices. Connoisseur's wine. I should note that some Burgundy hounds of my acquaintance consider the Clos des Mouches to be the most complex and intriguing of Drouhin's whites on a regular basis...91-94" IWC 09/10 "The 2009 Clos des Mouches Blanc is absolutely stellar this year and is one of the best recent vintages of this wine in memory. The brilliant nose is deep and quite reserved, as it offers up scents of apple, lemon, tart orange, a great, complex base of soil tones, spring flowers and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and rock solid at the core, with grand cru weight and nascent complexity, great acidity and stunning length and grip on the stunning finish...94+" JG 11/10

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.
