The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches has a superb bouquet with passion fruit, honeysuckle and jasmine, very expressive at this early stage with wonderful, vibrant fruit concentration. The palate is delicious now! Outstanding balance here, razor-sharp acidity

Allen Meadows’s Burgendy reference :

I tasted this visit with Véronique Drouhin, who noted that 2007 “can be excellent for the whites but the quality is certainly variable. The flowering was variable as well, which meant that the véraison was all over the map. Generally speaking, the later the véraison the better the quality, at least if you waited to pick.

Those sectors with earlier ripening were prone to have at least some rot though in general, the chardonnay in 2007 was very clean. As to the wines, they remind me of a less even 2004.” For more complete comments about the 2007 vintage chez Drouhin, see Issue 34 or the database.

 I was impressed with the Drouhin ‘07s as the style of the vintage very much suits the style of the house (which emphasizes elegance and finesse), which by the way was also the case with the ’07 reds."

 

Founded in 1880 by Frédéric’s great-grandfather, the venerable house prides itself on producing Burgundies wines that are reflective of each vineyard site and vintage, and on not tailoring its wines to consumer whims. This makes the négociant, which produces more than 100 different wines, a good barometer of the overall quality of a vintage. 

Drouhin produce grands crus, several showed outstanding potential: Bonnes Mares is rich and silky, with rose and cassis aromas, and the mineral Griotte-Chambertin is reserved, showing a firm core of tannins and clean, pure fruit. A potential classic, the Musigny is a terroir-driven, amazingly supple and deep Pinot, with floral perfumes and red berry flavors.

Notes de dégustation

Stephen Tanzer : 93 points

" Palish yellow. Aromas of ripe pear, flowers, menthol, wet stone and subtle spices reveal a distinctly different, more smoky, iodiney minerality than the preceding wines. Rich, pure and opulent, showing a captivating sugar/acid balance and a touch of enlivening white pepper. Boasts a lovely combination of concentration and energy. Drouhin produced just 22 hectoliters per hectare here, owing to "the perturbations of the previous three years," according to enologist Jérôme Faure-Brac. Finishes saline, tactile and long, with a slightly phenolic character and firm structure. This wine is harmonious already, but Faure-Brac predicts that it and the Montrachet will be the longest-lived of the Drouhin 2015 whites."


Robert Parker : 92-94 points

" The 2015 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches has a superb bouquet with passion fruit, honeysuckle and jasmine, very expressive at this early stage with wonderful, vibrant fruit concentration. The palate is delicious now! Outstanding balance here, razor-sharp acidity, just a touch of lemongrass rubbing the citrus fruit up the wrong way and imposing superb tension on the finish. This is a Beaune Premier Cru that is punching well above its weight and comes recommended.
