Joseph Drouhin Clos Des Mouches Premier Cru Rouge 2017


Description

Pinot Noir from Beaune, Cote de Beaune, Cote d’Or, Burgundy, France

Critical Acclaim:
94 Points – Decanter
Is Clos des Mouches better suited to red or white grapes? The answer is both in a vintage like 2017. This was picked in five stages to maximise balance and complexity and made with 25% stems and 30% new wood. It’s not a blockbuster wine, prefering to charm rather than overwhelm the palate with elegance, refined tannins and spicy, wild strawberry and red cherry flavours.
94 Points – James Suckling
Lots of grilled meat, smoke and ripe fruit. Rich and decadent. Medium to full body, round and juicy tannins and a flavorful finish. Layered and juicy for the Clos des Mouches. Better after 2022.
94 Points – Wine Spectator
A rich red, with a velvety texture showing off floral, cherry, strawberry, licorice and mineral flavors. Beautifully balanced and firmly structured, this lingers with fresh cherry, iron and spice notes.
