2011 Rouge 1er Cru Clos des Mouches Domaine Joseph Drouhin
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
|Vineyard||Clos des Mouches|
Deep colour, a taut, mildly reductive nose (back in Nov 2012), but with distinctive black fruit and those tonic tannins of the vintage. Keeps its movement and energy right to the finish. L&S (Jan 2013)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The nose is a bit misleading as it seems quite light with an attractive mix of red fruited fragrances. The palate has depth richness some brooding black fruit lightened a bit towards the back by mulberry and red cherry. 2017-27 Rating: 95 Derek Smedley MW, www.dereksmedleymw.co.uk(Dec 2013)

Bright crimson. Broad pretty fruit, very alluring and easy to love. Masses of fruit – such a spread! Already lovely. Very fine tannins on the end. Just a little kick of dryness on the finish but lovely mouth-filling stuff. 2015-2027 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2013)

Silky and rippling first impression. Elegant and finely textured. It is ‘light’ in a good way with a open sunny, dancing quality. Subtle tannins and a long silky finish. The acidity is woven into the fruit with a hint of white minerality. Lovely freshness. A sophisticated and more complex wine. Fine.
