'The 2019 Beaune 1er Cru Clos des Mouches (Domaine) is very pretty, wafting from the glass with aromas of raspberries, cherries, peonies and orange rind that are more red-fruity and ethereal than I remember from barrel. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, it's sumptuous and elegant, with melting tannins, succulent acids and an expansive finish. Readers might think of the 2019 as a slightly richer, riper version of the lovely 2017. Drink 2023-2050.’ – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 93/100

'The 2019 Beaune Clos des Mouches 1er Cru (Rouge) contains 30% whole cluster. Dark berry fruit commingles with wet clay and light minty aromas. The palate is well balanced with a silky texture, a little "fatter" than the Beaune Grèves, with hints of licorice toward the persistent and very saline finish. This deserves four to five years in bottle, but it has a long, prosperous future ahead. Drink 2023-2040.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 92-94/100 (Dec 2020)

'With a vibrant Pinot ruby hue, the 2019 unfolds on the palate with sweet notes of raspberry, blackcurrant, spice and a touch of milk chocolate. An apparent late bloomer, this was kept on its lees for longer to encourage its optimum expression. For a warmer growing season, there is good freshness and elegance here with polished tannins and a smooth finish. Drinking Window 2024 - 2036.' – Robin Kick MW, Decanter, 92/100

'A slightly riper array is comprised by liqueur-like notes of plum, dark cherry and a plethora of floral elements. The medium weight flavors are quite rich yet also relatively fine with solid delineation that carries over to the balanced and lingering finish. Drink 2029+.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 91-93/100

Producer information In 1880, a 22-year-old Joseph Drouhin settled in Beaune and founded his own wine company. His son Maurice succeeded him and established a domaine for the Drouhin house by buying land in outstanding appellations including the famous Clos des Mouches and Clos de Vougeot. Today, 4th generation Véronique Drouhin continues the family’s prestigious Burgundy legacy. With 73 hectares of biodynamically-farmed vines, Joseph Drouhin is one of Burgundy’s largest estates. With vineyards in close to 90 different appellations, Drouhin offers a fascinating array of Burgundy terroirs.
