2000 Joseph Drouhin Beaune Clos des Mouches

SKU #500619
An outstanding wine. Pale yellow colour. Complex floral nose of white lilac and white rose. Once open, fruity aromas come to the fore, evolving towards grilled hazelnut and almond. When the wine is more mature, the nose is surprisingly strong and fifteen minutes of aeration produce wonderful notes of white truffle, citron (cedrat), honey and nutmeg, elegantly meshed together. Very lively on the palate. Its rich texture is in evidence, but also its structure and minerality. It is round, but never heavy. Harmonious fullness in the aftertaste. This wine allies remarkably the complexity and elegance of a Bâtard-Montrachet with the power of a Corton-Charlemagne.

WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Smoky, ripe Chardonnay in a mineral-driven package, with pear, melon and pineapple character. Medium-bodied, with a good focus on the distinctive finish.
At the vineyard 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 in the Clos des Mouches (14 hectares - 35 acres), one half planted with chardonnay, the other half with Pinot Noir. The harvest was beautiful. A higher acidity than in 1999 enhances the fruity and flowery notes. All appellations are very pleasant to drink now.
