Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 31/08/2012 The 2010 Beaune Clos des Mouches, one of the Drouhin’s flagships, is impossibly young. It needs several years, at a minimum, to shed some of its baby fat. Clos des Mouches has a great track record of aging, and while I rarely take the risk of cellaring white Burgundy these days, if I were to cellar a handful of 2010 whites, Clos des Mouches would be one of my choices. Today, it is the wine’s exceptional textural elegance and precise, saline minerality that make the deepest impression. Anticipated maturity: 2014+. This is a striking set of wines from Drouhin. Veronique Drouhin describes 2010 as a year with cool temperatures in July and August, but much better weather in September. As is the case throughout the region, I found the Pulignys especially ripe and exotic. I also tasted a range of the 2011s. Drouhin told me she thought the wines would need a little extra time in barrel to give them more body and volume. ()

Oaky spice dominates the nose, for now at least. Rich and more scented on the palate, though again the oak is to the fore. Underneath, there's pure, crisp lemon freshness. Bags of potential and finely balanced. Drink: 2017 to 2030
