Joseph Drouhin 2019 Clos des Mouches Premier Cru (Beaune)

#88 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2021
Return to List

Ripe, juicy yellow-plum and pear flavors are calibrated by a fresh mineral undertone in this voluptuous expression of one Burgundy's most celebrated vineyards. Matured 12 to15 months in 25% new oak, it's a big, powerful wine adorned in layers of sweet spice, smoke and dill undertones, but held upright by a spine of acidity. The wine needs some time to meld but should drink at peak from 2025 to 2035 and hold longer still. Anna Lee C. Iijima
