Beaune Clos des Mouches Rouge 2014 Drouhin, Joseph
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Beaune|
The 2014 Beaune 1Er Cru Clos des Mouches was picked between September 16 and 19, completely destemmed and raised for 16 months in cask. Noticeably deep in color, it has a tight blackberry and briary-scented nose that needs to develop a little more complexity and tension. The palate is dense on the entry, well balanced and showing some oak at the moment that will need to be subsumed. There is respectable weight and substance here, a touch of chewiness but decent length. A bit broad-shouldered, give this Clos des Mouches 4-5 years in bottle.
