RATINGS

...Gorgeous, smooth, round, supple and full of crisp, focused raspberry, earth and currant aromas and flavors.

Medium-full colour. Lovely rich clean nose. Very fine palate. Rich, fat, complex and concentrated....Full. Lovely balance. Will be really voluptuous. Very good indeed. Very fine lingering finish.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Beaune, Le Clos Des Mouches

Le Clos de Mouches is a 62-acre Premier Cru vineyard in Beaune, in Burgundy’s Cote d’Or. Though Beaune has no Grand Crus, it has 44 vineyards that are either entirely or partly Premier Cru. Le Clos de Mouches is located in the southern third of the appellation, and like many of its neighbors, it faces nearly due east.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
