Joseph Drouhin Clos des Mouches Blanc 2016
"They 2016 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Blanc escaped hail damage. It has an attractive bouquet, quite floral in style with yellow flowers, orange zest and a touch of lemon peel. The palate is well balanced with a slightly honeyed texture, a fine thread of acidity, quite dense and rich on the finish that caresses the mouth."
"An outstanding wine. 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". - Véronique Boss-Drouhin
