Joseph Drouhin Beaune Rouge Clos des Mouches 2011

Joseph Drouhin Beaune Rouge Clos des Mouches 750ML 2011       
Sku: 20392

 Vinous 90 points (Jan 2013)
Bright medium-deep red. Musky aromas of dark berries, licorice and minerals. Juicy, suave and fine-grained, with dark fruit flavors complicated by enticing subtle minerality and a whiff of game bird. Dry, classic wine with good density and and depth. Finishing flavors of dark berries, flowers and minerals give lovely lift to the primary back end. Really refreshing stony energy here. 90-92 Points
 Wine Spectator 89 points (Apr 30 2014)
Hints of wood smoke, char and vanilla accent the cherry and licorice flavors in this ample red. Expressive and harmonious, with moderate length. Best from 2015 through 2022. 500 cases imported.-BS

Technical notes
Site: at the southern end of the Beaune appellation, next to Pommard. The Drouhin vineyard is at mid-slope, on a mild incline with an east/south-east exposure. It is the largest parcel of the Clos des Mouches (14 hectares - 35 acres), one half planted with chardonnay, the other half with pinot noir. History & tradition: the name ”mouches” means flies. There were once bee-hives in this sun-drenched ”clos” (vineyard enclosure); the bees in the local dialect were called ”mouches a miel” (honey flies), hence the name Clos des Mouches. It is one of the first vineyards acquired by Maurice Drouhin (the founder’s son) in the 1920’s. With great determination, he bought 41 different parcels from 8 proprietors. It is planted equally in red and white grapes and both wines have achieved mythical status for the House of Joseph Drouhin. Soil: clay and limestone. Rocky soil in the upper part of the vineyard. At the center, the soil is limestone and marl. This light composition is responsible for the great finesse of the wine.
