Joseph Drouhin Clos des Mouches Blanc Beaune Premier Cru 2016

  • Sale
  • Regular price $248.00


Region : Burgundy, France

Varietal : 100% Chardonnay

Tasting Notes : Pale yellow colour. Complex floral nose of white lilac and white rose. Once open, fruity aromas come to the fore, evolving towards grilled hazelnut and almond. When the wine is more mature, the nose is surprisingly strong and fifteen minutes of aeration produce wonderful notes of white truffle, citron (cedrat), honey and nutmeg, elegantly meshed together. Very lively on the palate. Its rich texture is in evidence, but also its structure and minerality. It is round, but never heavy. Harmonious fullness in the aftertaste. This wine allies remarkably the complexity and elegance of a Bâtard-Montrachet with the power of a Corton-Charlemagne.

Vintage : It is a very homogeneous vintage. It is ripe and its aromatic structure is supported by its acidity balance. From charming to more intense, deep and complex. Drink now or cellar for up to 30 years.

Best enjoyed at 14°C.
