Reviews for 2010 Drouhin, Domaine Joseph Beaune Clos des Mouches Premier Cru

James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, November 2015
This is a phenomenal Clos des Mouches with incredible density and intensity. Full-bodied with a super-creamy texture. It shows so much stone, oyster shell and ripe fruits. From biodynamically grown grapes. Only 225 cases... This is a phenomenal Clos des Mouches with incredible density and intensity. Full-bodied with a super-creamy texture.

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+. 93+ -Antonio Galloni

Bright yellow. Gingery peach toast crushed stone and smoky minerality on the slightly reduced nose. Rich sweet and plush with a touch of spice to the ripe smoky stone fruit flavors. Boasts an almost glyceral sweetness... Bright yellow. Gingery peach toast crushed stone and smoky minerality on the slightly reduced nose. Rich sweet and plush with a touch of spice to the ripe smoky stone fruit flavors. Boasts an almost glyceral sweetness today but this very young wine needs time in bottle to lose some of its baby fat. Philippe Drouhin notes that this wine always gets reductive during elevage and that this quality takes at least a year in bottle to dissipate. He likes Clos des Mouches old pointing out that the 2004 and 2002 bottlings are still young. But then Drouhin admits that he generally prefers older wines because he dislikes the aromas and flavors of new oak. 93+

A beautifully layered nose is remarkably complex as it combines notes of petrol mineral reduction lemon zest white flowers and a hint of wood. There is reasonably good detail to the relatively soft and forward flavors... A beautifully layered nose is remarkably complex as it combines notes of petrol mineral reduction lemon zest white flowers and a hint of wood. There is reasonably good detail to the relatively soft and forward flavors that possess fine energy and excellent length. I wouldn't call this a classic Drouhin Clos des Mouches but it is lovely all the same.
