Joseph Drouhin Beaune Clos des Mouches Blanc 1er Cru 2018

Beaune, Côte de Beaune, Côte d'Or, Burgundy, FranceThe complexity attracts from its evocative floral nose to the intensity of the flavours across and below the palate. The trademark grilled hazelnut and almond lace the wine with umami that fades into the citrus, honey, earthy, truffle, nutmeg notes that fence, with the mineral backbone throughout the finish. This is one delicious white wine. The depth and layering of flavours are sublime, suggesting it can take on rich meals. The winery describes it as having "the complexity and elegance of a Bâtard-Montrachet with the power of a Corton-Charlemagne". 2018 is considered an exceptional year for whites, leaving you to imagine drinking this wine in five years or as many as 30 years.Tasted: 12 July 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
