The 1978 vintage produced one of the top vintages of Clos des Mouches in the last forty years and out of double magnum, the wine is drinking beautifully. The deep, complex and utterly classic nose jumps from the glass in a blaze of cherries, red plums, venison, coffee, woodsmoke, fresh herbs and a beautifully complex base of autumnal soil tones. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and still young in this format, with a superb core of fruit, great soil signature, tangy acids and a very long, gently tannic and very complex finish. A great vintage of Clos des Mouches that has reached its apogee, but has tons of life still in it.
