Beaune Clos des Mouches white 2017 Domaine Joseph Drouhin is a Premier Cru made from the Chardonnay grape (100%). The name "Clos des Mouches" comes from the fact that this sunny enclosure housed beehives, and bees were once called "honey flies".

The colour is a brilliant pale yellow. The floral nose is complex: white lilac, white rose. Once more open, fruity aromas emerge, which evolve into intense notes of hazelnut and toasted almonds. For those who have reached maturity, the nose surprises with its power, after about fifteen minutes of ventilation: white truffle, citron, honey, nutmeg respond to each other with a singular elegance. On the palate, the wine has liveliness. You can feel the richness but also the structure and a certain minerality. The wine has fat without ever being heavy, it gives a beautiful fullness at the end of the mouth. We find the complexity and elegance of a Bâtard-Montrachet, harmoniously combined with the fullness of a Corton-Charlemagne. Exceptional wine !!

It can be enjoyed at 13-14 ° C with snails, a fillet of sole with cream, or a poultry terrine.

The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines.

Main grapes:

Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy and these vines cover 34% of the region, accounting for 29% of overall wine production. The red grape does extremely well in limestone and clay soil, which helps create their complexity. Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy range in colour from cherry to brick, are light in body, and typically have red fruit and spicy flavours. Gamay is a red grape also grown in Burgundy, but only makes up 10% of the vines.

Chardonnay is the primary grape for white wines in Burgundy, making up 48% of the vines and 68% of production. Chardonnay appreciates Burgundy’s marl soil, which gives it delicate floral, fruit, and mineral aromas and full-bodied flavours. Aligoté is the second white grape, accounting for 6% grown. {Read more about the ancient Aligoté grape in Burgundy.}

The region does produce a sparkling wine called Crémant de Bourgogne. It can be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Aligoté, Gamay, Sacy, and Melon. Varieties include blanc, blanc de blancs, blanc de noirs, and rosé.
