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.
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 à miel", honey flies, hence the name Clos des Mouches.
Beautiful, deep-red ruby color, with the bright sheen of great Burgundies.
Intense and fresh nose. Primary notes of red fruit dominate, such as Morello cherry, raspberry, blackberry.
There are hints of complexity with smoky flavors evolving towards licorice.
There remains a final and most pleasing sensation of harmony, fullness and delicate tannins, as the wine lingers on the palate.
