Joseph Drouhin, Mâcon-Bussières Les Clos 750ml 2017France, Burgundy
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.
‘It’s a real pleasure working with Véronique and her team. Along with their famous wines of Montrachet and Clos des Mouches, every single wine, down to their entry-level cuvées, offer precision, elegance and purity.’ – Roland

Tasting notes on the 2018 vintage:
'The 2018 Mâcon-Bussières Les Clos comes from a contract from four growers that own 75% of the vineyard, and is two-thirds matured in stainless steel and one-third in 500-liter barrels. It has a lovely bouquet with lemon curd and praline aromas that burst from the glass. The palate is well balanced with a citric opening and quite saline in the mouth, leading to a lively, spicy finish. Excellent.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 89/100
