Maison Joseph Drouhin Beaune 'Clos des Mouches' Premier Cru 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Stephen Tanzer: "Medium red. Smoke and spices on the nose. Round, sweet and pliant, with flavors of redcurrant and spices. Finishes with firm but supple tannins and good lingering sweetness." Wine Enthusiast: "Very smooth and supple in the mouth, this feels like great Burgundy. The flavors are somewhat herbal, blending green stems with cherries and other stone fruits and hints of nuts and vanilla. Finishes long, with spicy, briary overtones that add complexity."

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.
